Acclaimed songwriter and producer Mikey Bennett is marshalling a number of dancehall entertainers who are lending their voices to the Science Genius Jamaica competition.

Science Genius Jamaica is designed to get high school students and teachers excited about science and increase the number of students succeeding in the area.

Where Science Genius uses hip-hop music in the US, Science Genius Jamaica will use dancehall music to help Jamaican teachers and students discover and explore the wonders of science.

The King of Dancehall, Beenie Man, and dancehall singer Tammo J are among the entertainers who have come onboard, taking on the subject area of mathematics with the aim of helping students master their multiplication tables.  

Science Genius Jamaica has been documenting the moments on Instagram, which shows Beenie Man deejaying his two-times table while Tammo J takes on the nine-times table.

Qraig of the group Voicemail is also part of the project.
