Accomplished Jamaican music producer and songwriter Mikey Bennett is tasked with coordinating the participation of several dancehall artists in the Science Genius Jamaica competition.
Dancehall kingpin Beenie Man, Voicemail and emerging talent Tammo J are among the entertainers who have joined the initiative to help students master their multiplication tables through the study of mathematics.
Beenie Man deejaying his two-times table while Tammo J tackles the nine-times table has been documented on Instagram by Science Genius Jamaica.
Science Genius Jamaica aims to excite high school students and teachers about science and increase the interest level and the number of successful students in the field.
The organisers will use dancehall music to help Jamaican teachers and students discover and explore the wonders of science. A similar concept is used in the United States. However, in that space, Science Genius uses hip-hop music.
