Two brave nerds dare mixing science with pop music, and yield a big reaction.

Science communication has never been more critical, but it can be a tough sell for today’s pop-culture immersed kids. Even cult-celebrity scientists like Neil Degrasse Tyson and Bill Nye can’t hope to compete with the offhand lyrics of super-idols like Taylor Swift.

Their unlikely hybrid, AsapSCIENCE, sets positive science messages to pop music—and currently boasts over 4 million YouTube subscribers.
