THE BIODOME: Education Outreach and Entertainment
An immersive experience learning about science and invertebrates in person in real-time. “Edutainment” / “Jurassic Park” of bugs! Imagine: A tropical forest, a desert, a grassland and beautiful insects and other live exotic and giant insects and other invertebrates from all of the world – STEM science education facility and a state of the art Biotechnology institute all under one roof!

About This Project:
Dr. Aaron T. Dossey: ISI President, Founder and Chair of the Board: ISI is the brain child of Ph.D. Biochemist, Biomedical Scientist and self-taught Entomologist Dr. Aaron T. Dossey, derived from his life-long passion for insects and the natural world.
Imagine: A tropical forest, a desert, a grassland and beautiful insects and other live exotic and giant insects and other invertebrates from all of the world – STEM science education facility and a state of the art Biotechnology institute all under one roof! An immersive experience learning about science and invertebrates in person in real-time. “Edutainment” / “Jurassic Park” of bugs! At the ISI Biotech Biodome, you will experience science, technology biology and the natural world and learn how invertebrates really run the show when it comes to life on earth! You’ll see hundreds of species of invertebrates, plants and other organisms as well as interact with real scientists doing real cutting edge work on drug discovery, genomics and many areas of biological science. The key, the core, the crown jewel of ISI will be the world’s largest biodome and biotech facility. This will be the tool that will allow us to ultimately fulfill our mission. The ISI Biotech Biodome will truly be where the magic happens! More info here: https://isibugs.org/biodome/
