Come and explore the Solar System and beyond in 3D!!!
Marston Exploration Theater (MET) in ISTB 4
Show times: 4:30pm, 5:45pm, 7pm and 8:15pm
Join ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) for an amazing view our planet, our Solar System, and the galaxies beyond in a 45 minute 3D tour of the Universe! We will highlight current and future exploration missions.
This show is geared for kids from age 6-100!
Scientists use infrared photography to reveal hidden patterns of warm and cool temperatures, health of plants, and more. This is your chance to get a portrait of yourself in infrared, and learn how geographers use infrared imagery! Time: 5-10 minutes.
Did you know that Arizona has the highest ant diversity of any U.S. state? Come see the diversity of ants being worked on by ASU researchers and talk to graduate students studying these fascinating insects! A variety of Arizona ants will be on display for you to observe and learn about their behaviors, habitats, communication, and foraging styles. Species will include Arizona leafcutters, desert harvester ants, and rock-dwelling ants!

Featuring projects for ASU’s Digital Culture program, this showcase includes interactive performances and installations. Projects range from an interactive dance performance, to a surfing simulator, to a Zen-like immersive environment installation. Come experience these interactive projects and learn about the future of digital media.
Where in the world is the hottest temperature ever recorded? The most rain? The strongest wind? Learn this and more in a game based on high-tech web mapping. If you like, learn other uses for mapping software that's freely available on the Internet.
Can playing games like World of Warcraft, The Sims, Mass Effect, and Happy Action Theater actually help us learn? English PhD student Jeff Holmes, a fellow at the ASU Center for Games and Impact, discusses his research on “gaming to change the world.” Visit our NOD Game Room and play games like Portal, Minecraft, and others to judge the results for yourself!
Did you grow up wanting to be an anthropologist? Archaeologist? Wonder how humans "became human?" The Institute of Human Origins opens its doors for you to see and touch skulls and bones (casts) from different phases of human evolution and learn about how humans developed over "deep time"—the last six million years! Including the “founding fossil” Lucy, the 3.2 million-year-old Australopithecus afarensis discovered by Don Johanson in 1974, called “queen of hominin skeletons.” So, put on your best Indiana Jones hat and come explore anthropology!
Curious about where crimes occur in Tempe? Want to see how GIS technology -- Geographic Information Systems -- can be used to find geographic patterns & clusters? This is your opportunity! Drop in anytime; plan to spend 10-15 minutes.
How can GIS technology be used to help victims of domestic violence find the resources they need? Or help find a suitable spot for a Mars landing? Graduate students and recent alumni will show you these and other projects they’re working on, and what else computer-based mapping technology can do.
