Nowadays music, technology, mathematics and science go hand-in-hand.
GlobalGrind spoke to the creative and stylish genius about the importance of kids learning and using technology and science in their daily lives via a program he created called "i.am FIRST."
"I created and produced 'i.am FIRST: Science is Rock and Roll' to inspire youth to get involved with science, technology, engineering and math, so they will want to be a part of the future that technology knowledge offers," will.i.am explained.
"Inner city kids, they are survivors. We need to bring programs like FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) so inner city kids are equipped and prepared to compete and succeed in the future."
On Sunday, August 14 at 7:00 ET ABC will air the program to promote STEM education and celebrate the 20th annual FIRST competition.
The event will feature FIRST co-founder Dean Kamen, will.i.am and Federal Chief Technology Officer, Aneesh Chopra and will have plenty of footage from this spring’s FIRST competition in Saint Louis.
The competition will also feature musical performances by the Black Eyed Peas and include special appearances by a dozen other musical celebrities.
The program is a must see because the show is actually airing on primetime TV and not just on PBS!
