An estimated one million children believe thatProfessor Green is a real scientist, according to new research.
In a poll organised by Tulisa created the antibiotic penicillin, while 35% believe that Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, discovered gravity.
Results also showed that more people were familiar with Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg (68%) than Albert Einstein (45%).
A spokesman for Haier Home Appliances UK stated: "It is eye-opening to discover that children of today are more aware of popular figures like Mark Zuckerberg than men and women who have made iconic discoveries and inventions that have revolutionised the modern world.
"At Haier, we put science at the very heart of everything we do, and we passionately believe the future of innovation lies in the scientific interest and imagination of the next generation."
Pro has since commented on the survey results, writing on Twitter: "One million school children think I'm a real professor? One rapper thinks there are probably better questions to be asking school children."
