Time travel with us to the Renaissance. We'll attend a dramatic reading of a Shakespearean play, where audience members (known as "groundlings") become part of the action. Play a role! No experience or preparation required.
Bee Hive Observation Display A live observation bee hive! See how the queen and her worker bees interact and learn about the role of bees in our world. ASU's resident expert Osman Kaftanoglu hosts the buzz for visitors with a photographic exhibit, too.
Learn about exciting research going on at ASU to produce fuels from sunlight without warming the earth! 4th year graduate student Justin Flory will explain how his research adapts natural photosynthesis from plants and bacteria to make it suitable for capturing and storing solar energy on an industrial scale. He is eager to answer questions and discuss your ideas on alternative energy, climate change, fossil fuels or any of your other scientific curiosities!
Find out more about Justin and his amazing research:
Zone 2 | LSC Atrium
An interesting display of different bacterial colonies with diverse lifestyles and ubiquitous natures. See it all under the microscope! Bacteria are EVERYWHERE.....
Birds look different to each other than they do to us. They see ultraviolet light and their feathers often reflect this light, to create colors that are invisible to humans. Come see our demonstration explaining how our feathered friends communicate secretly in color!
Zone 2 | LSC Atrium
Conceptualized by Andrew Ross, head of Learning Support Services in ASU's School of International Letters and Cultures in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Stephane Charitos, director of the Language Resource Center at Columbia University in the City of New York, as a way to bring Spanish speaking students from various countries of origin and in different cities together in conversation, a humanities learning project, titled “Hispanidades/Hispanicities,” successfully launched in Fall 2011.
Join us at ASU Night of the Open Door and the Engineering Open House!! Come learn about how wind energy and engineering design activities can bring alive science learning in your classrooms!

Children of all ages love to watch and participate in chemistry demonstrations. We will have a variety of demos that will illustrate complex scientific concepts. This will be followed by a tour of some of the research labs in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry where there will also be hands-on activities. The location is just outside the Physical Sciences F wing entrance with our glass blower.
