Edmund Adjapong, a native of the Bronx, NY, is a New York City Public School science teacher and a student at Teachers College, Columbia University. He is currently pursuing a Masters of Education in Science Education and received a Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry and minor in Africana Studies from The State University of New York at Plattsburgh. Edmund believes every student has the ability to learn, and does so differently. He also believes that engaging students through urban youth culture, specifically Hip-Hop – despite its unconventional method – is an effective way to educate. Edmund enjoys working with and mentoring youth, especially young men of color. He is the administrator for the Science Genius Program, a program that engages urban students in the sciences through Hip-Hop, and the director of The Science Genius Academy, a program that encourages and prepares students to pursue STEM careers while providing mentoring and support. Following the completion of his masters degree, Edmund plans on continuing education by pursuing his Doctorate of Philosophy in Science Education.
