Students Take to the Sunrise Stage for the 3rd Annual STE@M Rap Battle

Learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics along with a splash of the arts (STE@M) makes students want to sing and dance. From a scientific point of view, the previous two trials (AKA previous two annual Rap Battles), support the hypothesis that the 3rd annual STE@M Rap Battle will play to another full house at the Sunrise Theater in Fort Pierce on Friday, November 20th at 7 P.M.

Student teams from around the district will align STE@M-based lyrics to hip-hop beats in a Rap Battle sponsored by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) and hosted by special guest Dr. Christopher Emdin, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Science and Technology at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Two-time STE@M Rap Battle winners, The Nerdy Boyz from Fort Pierce Central High School, will take the stage along with thirteen other teams to vie for the Rap Battle Championship. A panel of community leaders will utilize a specific scoring rubric that takes into account depth of content, collaborative impact, and artistic quality to score and rank performances. Tickets are free and going fast. To reserve your seat call 772-429-7752.
