Year in School: Senior

Major: Psychology, with a minor in leadership of organizations.

Why is he a part of the Student Biodome Project: I am thrilled to be involved in the Student Biodome Project. The Student Biodome Project holds a special place in my heart due to its ingenious fusion of education and hands-on involvement, which fosters a profound comprehension of ecological principles while nurturing a palpable sense of environmental stewardship. By immersing students in the construction and nurturing of self-contained ecosystems, the project not only imparts theoretical knowledge but also cultivates a genuine appreciation for the intricate interplay of life on our planet.

Year in School: Senior

Major: Animal Science

Why is she a part of the Student Biodome Project: When I originally joined, I truthfully wasn’t

sure what this club was all about. However, as I became more involved, I began to see the

importance of the Biodome and how having something like this is beneficial. Not only does the

Biodome provide somewhere for people to go and connect with nature, but it brings together

people from all areas of life. The club is a place where people of all majors have the opportunity

to share their ideas. Aside from this, because of COVID we lost a lot of connection with people

and the Biodome allows us to reconnect. The Student Biodome Project is also a passion project

that when built will be a result of the hardwork of students and not just one individual.

As our society grapples with the changing environments, I see value in a project devoted to introducing a little more nature into the lives of our communities.
