Elementary Institute Of Science and Rhymes with Reason Team Up to Support San Diego Students

Elementary+Institute+Of+Science+and+Rhymes+with+Reason+Team+Up+to+Support+San+Diego+Students

A collaboration between Elementary Institute of Science and Rhymes With Reason will support 200 San Diego students to increase vocabulary and verbal skills.

San Diego CA— Through the generous support of the Moxie Foundation, The Elementary Institute of Science (EIS) is offering a FREE online learning opportunity this summer in conjunction with Rhymes with Reason (RWR), a digital learning resource that helps students in grades 5 and up, build verbal & literacy skills via hip-hop and popular music.
EIS has long wanted to collaborate with RWR, as we often do with other organizations, like Diamond Excellence Educational Partnership (DEEP) and DETOUR. Rhymes with Reason is an online learning platform that is methodologically sound with the perspective and creative insight of young millennials and Gen-Z’ers to deliver education to “up and coming” Generation Z students. RWR was founded by 25-year-old San Diego native, Austin Martin who was recently recognized as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 in Education and is an Ed.M candidate at Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2021. RWR has partnered with multiple organizations including Chance the Rapper’s nonprofit SocialWorks to bring this leading technology to students all over the country.
A strong vocabulary is essential for success in all subjects, and especially in STEM. For students to become successful engineers or scientists, they need to develop strong literacy skills. These subjects require the interpretation of technical texts, content-specific vocabulary, and the ability to clearly communicate complex concepts both verbally and written. By integrating literacy and popular music, students become more engaged with reading thus improving their educational outcomes.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, raising funds to meet the increased educational needs of students has been challenging for nonprofits. “We are so grateful that the Moxie Foundation and Rhymes with Reason came through for us. This is a moment when the community is feeling added stress from all that is going on. We believe our students deserve engaging programs and new learning opportunities. Building a rich vocabulary with hip hop music is another fun addition to EIS programs that set our students up for success in STEM.” Patsy Tomlin, President Board of Directors at EIS.
