Biosphere 2’s education and outreach programs are sustainable and community-oriented and they address fundamental scientific challenges regarding water and energy management in semi-arid environments.
Specifically, our education and outreach programs:
- Highlight the complex coupling of life, energy, and water in the dynamics of our world to inspire our students and the general public, including K-12 teachers and students;
- Train leaders among university faculty and students in communicating science to the general public;
- Are responsive to the needs of diverse stakeholders and audiences.
