  • This year, the Terrascope program offered a unique challenge to a group of more than 50 freshmen in Mission 2013, or 12.000.

In the past, Terrascope has asked freshmen to study a variety of complex problems including the destruction of the Amazon rain forest, reconstruction of post-Katrina New Orleans, collapse of the global fishery, and the lack of fresh water in western North America.
