The Biophilia Educational Program

Bjork is once again providing inspiration with her album and app, Biophilia. She has created an educational program (The Biophilia Educational Program), that has been hosting interdisciplinary workshops for youth aged 10 to 12 to learn about music and science, using diverse teaching tools such as analog and digital instruments, video, 3D imagery, and other inspired ways to teach musical creativity.

The program has already made quite a great impact in Iceland and recently came to the United States for a brief residency in New York at the New York Hall of Science in collaboration with The Creators Project. In Iceland, the Reykjavik City Board of Education will ensure that the workshops travel to all the city’s schools in the coming 3 years. The program currently has 11 scientists, 8 music teachers, and 4 science teachers.
