K-12 Programs Overview
Programs for K-12 students and teachers are central to our education and outreach mission. More than 10,000 school children visit Biosphere 2 annually, and teacher professional development programs are held regularly. We offer grade-level tours and interactive, hands-on programs for all K-12 grades, residential summer programs for middle and high school students, and residential summer institutes for teachers. In addition, we partner with numerous organizations offering citizen science programs that, in most cases, are applicable to the K-12 classroom. Lastly, we actively seek opportunities to collaborate with other universities and organizations in developing and hosting meaningful opportunities for students using the unique scientific attributes of Biosphere 2.
