Black Eyed Peas musician will.i.am and inventor Dean Kamen don’t seem like they would have much in common. But the pair has teamed up to support science education for youth. Their back-to-school TV special, featuring musical performances and a robotics competition, airs August 14th.
Dean Kamen is the founder and president of DEKA Research and Development, as well as the founder of the FIRST Robotics Competition. He’s based in Manchester, New Hampshire.
William Adams, known professionally as will.i.am, is an American hip hop recording artist, entrepreneur, actor, musician, record producer and philanthropist.
