Thank you for coming on March 2 for Arizona State University's Night of the Open Door! We hope that you enjoyed celebrating the sciences, engineering, humanities and the arts with our 1,000 ASU volunteers and Arizona families.
If you missed the event, we'll be back the first Saturday in March 2014 (March 1). You can see some of the great events, activities, performances attended by an estimated 10,000 adventure seekers across the Tempe campus from 4-9 p.m. in our photo gallery.
ASU's Night of the Open Door is a signature event of the Arizona SciTech Festival, and rated one of the top events of 2012 and 2013. The evening offers a window into the creative energy that powers a world-class university, with more than 100 interactive activities hosted by ASU student volunteers, faculty and staff. In addition, the Emerge conference offered eclectic performances. Teenagers, children, parents, teachers, alumni, entrepreneurs and the just-plain-curious entered doorways into laboratories, living collections, and museums. Visitors experienced artistic performances, talks hands-on activities and discovered spaces normally closed to public view, including the Biodesign Institute, ASU Super Computer, Mars Space Flight Facility and ASU Planetarium, Hasbrouck Insect Collection.
This year, we also offered some events earlier in the day on the Tempe campus, from engineering field trips for middle-schoolers to an exciting Vex Robotics State Championship Tournament as part of the Engineering Open House. There were also activities on ASU's West campus, including the Rubix Cube Face off, at OpenDoor@West!
Want a glimpse of the future? We'll be adding ASU athletics and a blockbuster visual experience sponsored by video technology leaders CCS and Christie Digital for 2014!
