- A Biology professor challenged his class to make a music video about any subject they covered
- Julien Turner took up the challenge and recorded a rap song about Biology concepts
- It has taken social media by storm
University professors are continuously looking for ways to make their subjects more interesting.
For one Biology professor in a US university, one way was to challenge his class to make a music video about any subject they had covered.
Student-athlete Julien Turner duly took up the challenge and recorded a rap video titled XY Cell Life. It's an educational remix of Lil Uzi Vert's Xo Tour Llife.
The video has absolutely gone viral. It has garnered more than 145,000 retweets and 309,000 likes on Twitter.
Turner captioned his video: "Professor: Make a music video over any subject we've covered and I'l curve your overall grade. Me: Hold my drink."
In the music video, Turner makes biological concepts sound easy and fun through his hilarious lyrics. One line goes: "If my genes go left unread, all my cells are dead."
If Turner made more educational music videos, perhaps more young kids wouldn't see learning as such a difficult thing!
