We all know that Wu-Tang has always been for the children, now it's just official. Wu legend GZA has recently spent time at New York's Park East High School to help encourage science appreciation within the student body. The idea is the brainchild of Dr. Chris Emdin of Columbia University's Teachers College who observed that, "The people who most embrace hip-hop culture are the same populations who are most disinterested in school and disinterested in science".

While writing rhymes related to school topics may sound corny, GZA explains, "The goal is just to awaken the children, make them more aware and embrace science and everything connected to it." For those interested in a more in-depth interview with GZA on the subject peep astrophysicist/whitest black guy ever Neil deGrasse Tyson's sit down with the rapper here.
