Free Your Mind: A Hip Hop Education STEMposium was held at TDSB Central Technical School last Thursday April 21 and Friday April 22. 

From their site:  “Free Your Mind: A Hip Hop Education STEMposium brings Hip Hop as critical pedagogy (HHCP) and STEM together in an exploration of innovative educational practices that seek to enhance the engagement and achievement of all students. This dialogue between HHCP and STEM also seeks to critique traditional educational methodologies that fail to connect to students and prepare them to engage with the world around them in critical and meaningful ways.”

From the news item: “The focus of the two-day event is to connect “STEM” (which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and Hip Hop as Critical Pedagogy (HHCP), a type of teaching that explores how hip-hop culture can be mobilized not only to encourage engagement but also to challenge inequities in the classroom.”
