Hip-Hop Health and Science Stage Play

This high energy production is called Morgan’s Big Biology Test Play. Through group participation and hands-on activities, students (middle school to post-graduate) learn the structure, function and diseases of the cardiovascular system. Participants join in an adventure with a student named Morgan to help her study for an upcoming Biology Test and to understand the heart and healthy living habits. After the play, students reinforce learning through a guided pig heart demonstration, a stethoscope workshop, hands-only CPR and networking with health and science professionals. The Hip Hop Stage Play has been performed in NYC, Detroit, MI, Atlanta, GA and Little Rock, AK.
