STEM songs

Founded in February of 1999, this site offers songs I have written and co-written about various topics in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Please select audio files (MP3s), videos, lyrics pages (often including lesson plans), and sheet music from the menu below. MP3 files can be downloaded to your hard drive by right-clicking (if you use a PC) or control-clicking (if you use a Mac) on the song title and selecting the appropriate option (usually "Save Target As..." or "Download Link to Disk...").

Or, for a slightly less Crowther-centric view of the STEM music universe, visit SingAboutScience.org.
