Biophilia Project


Experience science, technology, and music in a new and innovative way. Check out the Biophilia workshop series at The New York Public Library and get a hands-on science and music experience inspired by the Biophilia project.  Conduct your own science experiments with pendulums, crystals, magnets, and static electricity and learn how science connects to the everyday.  Take scientific ideas and translate them into music using the creation tools in the Biophila app on an iPad. All materials provided. For ages 12 to 18.
