Rap Science

Rap Science Challenge

We teamed up with Jon Chase, science rapper, and the Institute of Physics, to challenge young people in Swindon to tell us what they want science to tackle for their future.

They could rap, sing, present, perform a demo or tell a story. No powerpoint allowed, just them and something they were passionate about.  Jon picked his favourite, which was streamed live at the online Festival of Tomorrow in 2021.


The Science Photo Library collaborated with science rapper Jon Chase to make this new song and video about how science education illuminates the world around us.  We were able to use this rap to give the young people in Swindon a little more inspiration!
