The Icelandic artist's Biophelia Educational Program injects music lessons with a dosage of scientific inquiry.

While pop star Bjork has been gradually turning her attention to questions regarding science and nature for quite some time now, her new album Biophilia represents the idea that technology can help humanity reintegrate into nature. To deliver on this hypothesis, Bjork is making a name for herself in music education.

The Biophilia Educational Program, hosts 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. Bjork's Biophilia app is used as a starting point for the young students and other lessons on electric charges and DNA follow afterwards.
