Tufts professor raps in class about science

From the Boston Globe:

He is a stem cell researcher, and a college professor who helps freshmen negotiate the tricky ethical questions of science. But Professor Jonathan Garlick has earned notoriety among the scientific community, and with his students, as the Stem Cell Rapper. In his classes, the balding, bespectacled 60-year-old cranks a karaoke machine and raps out lyrics about science and society to music made popular by Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Sir Mix-a-Lot.

The video doesn’t embed, but you can watch it on the Boston Globe home page, upper right corner, for now.

Here’s another of his video’s that on YouTube.  From watching the video the on the Globe site, he’s actually quite up on rap.  Was into it as a grad student.  I personally can’t stand the genre. Not sure this YouTube is as good as the Globe video, but worth checking them out.
