Biosphere 2 serves as a laboratory for controlled scientific studies, an arena for scientific discovery and discussion, and a far-reaching provider of public education. Its missions is to serve as a center for research, outreach, teaching, and life-long learning about Earth, its living systems and its place in the universe; to catalyze interdisciplinary thinking and understanding about Earth and its future; to be an adaptive tool for Earth education and outreach to industry, government, and the public; and to distill issues related to Earth systems planning and management by policymakers, students and the public.
Biosphere 2 has been a long time partner of the School Garden Workshop. Biosphere 2 offers hands-on and interactive field trips that can be found on their field trip planner website. Additionally Biosphere 2 offers fantastic summer programming for high school students through its Global Environmental Leadership and Sustainability Program. This program provides students the opportunity to stay at Biosphere 2 and participate in research programs with our researchers.
