It’s no secret that we think science is about as cool as it gets but it is always heartening to see the idea get a little boost from Hollywood.

Last week on ABC there was an awesome special called — Science is Rock and Roll which took an inside look at the 20th Annual FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championship, a worldwide science and robotics K-12 competition.

The special also included many celebrities singing the praises (literally and figuratively) of science, technology and math including Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Josh Duhamel, Miley Cyrus, Jack Black, Justin Bieber, Bono and the  Black Eyed Peas.

As much as we all want to grow up to be rock stars and movie gods, it is science after all that makes most everything in our world possible.

The iamFirst Campaign, hosted on Facebook, helps encourage kids to study science, technology, math and engineering in order to become the people that change our future.

The video above, called My Robot is Better Than Your Robot gives a nice overview of the program. You can also watch the entire program on YouTube.
