UACI is proud to have an outpost centered around sustainable technologies at the Biosphere 2. The Biosphere 2 consists of a unique large-scale experimental apparatus housing seven model ecosystems where a team of multidisciplinary scientists, a broad science education and public outreach program, and sustainable tech startups test and demonstration new inventions. The term “Biosphere 2” derives from the idea that it is modeled on Earth, the first biosphere. The mission of Biosphere 2 is to advance our understanding of the natural and man-made environment through unique experimentation, training of interdisciplinary scientists, science education and public outreach – and research to address grand challenges that affect the quality of life and the understanding of our place in the universe.
