“Leland Melvin and myself are working with the Instituting Science in Schools Program, sponsored by NASA and I’m just here to give the young people some inspiration, some positive encouragement and some good information about science, technology, creativity and discovery and how to use math, science and information to make a positive impact and changes on the world around us,” Mos Def told AllHipHop.com.
