In an effort to make STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics] studies “cool,” the seven-time Grammy Award winner teamed up with Segway inventor Dean Kamen for his back to school TV special titled, i.am.FIRST: Science is Rock & Roll.

I.am.FIRST is an hour-long TV special on the 20th annual FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championship, a worldwide science and robotics competition for kids in grades K-12. In addition to highlighting tech savvy young from around the globe, the show will feature performances by The Black Eyed Peas and Willow Smith, among others. (more)
