Head to Chester Zoo on the 4 and 5 of August to be energised by brand new performance pieces from acclaimed science rapper Jon Chase.
Part of the inspired Wild Worlds festival, expect to be swept away in a rap inspired by the zoo’s major campaign to save orangutans from extinction. Sustainable palm oil could be the solution to this crisis and we can all do our bit by our daily purchasing choices and by helping to increase demand for it.
This fun-fact-packed performance both explores science and helps understanding of the world around us. Jon will also be performing other impressive high energy raps live at the zoo too.
Science rap? Yes, indeed. Jon Chase is science communication royalty no less with a passion for more accessible routes into knowledge. He is acclaimed by The Guardian as education’s next best thing and holds degrees in Aerospace Engineering, Science and Science Fiction and Communicating Science. He has performed widely on CBBC and Channel 4 Learning and produced raps for NASA, The Science Museum, The Royal Society and The Royal Institution.
We can’t wait to witness his lyrical storytelling and how it reveals how we can all play a part in preventing extinction.
Performances will take place each day at 1.30, 3 and 4pm.
