Early this year saw the first convention of the innovative project CACAO. Musica collaborates with 6 other European partners on the development of an educational program that applies music and art to familiarise children with biological concepts.

CACAO stands for “Cell Biology and Art Class Omnibus”. This unique Erasmus + project brings together a European team of researchers in biology and music, artists, pre-school teachers, and experts in technology-assisted learning.
