Volcanoes are cool! Many would agree and volcanoes are becoming places of interest for many a tourist around the world. But what does it mean to understand how volcanoes work. Come and find out during the Nght of the Open Door. We have a dynamic group here at ASU working on a variety of problems to crack the secrets of some of the most beautiful, and dangerous, phenomena on the planet.
Zone 4 | ISTB4 room 121
If you like fun, mind-stimulating games, Computer Science may be for you! Come to Women in Computer Science's exhibit to challenge yourself and discover the process of problem solving in Computer Science and Engineering.
Zone 3 | ECG Student Center
What is it like to launch into space on the Space Shuttle, or to float weightless and work on the International Space Shuttle? Come meet NASA astronaut Catherine "Cady" Coleman and experience her journey. Extraordinary slideshow (out of this world), talk, Q & A. Do you have what it takes to follow in her footsteps? Find out!
Is it a LIQUID or a SOLID??! Combine the sciences with OOBLECK! Kids can make their own, get a little gooey, and watch it dance!
Oobleck is a classic science experiment that's perfect for entertaining both kids and adults. If you haven't seen it in action it's very fascinating stuff and before too long you'll have your hands covered with it, happily making a mess that can be washed away with water. The "Bio Butter" acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it. You can grab it and then it will ooze out of your hands.
Zone 2 | LSC Atrium
Laptop Orchestra of Arizona State (LOrkAS) is an experimental sonic art performance collective exploring the use of the laptop as ensemble instrument for musical expression. We are using this medium to develop new possibilities and skills in listening, improvisation, performance, composition, coding, and teaching, as well as adapting contemporary classical repertoire and 'classic' laptop orchestra works for our purposes. Visit the group's website at http://lorkas.org
LOrkAS will perform:
Visitors can explore fun with mirrors, heat, static electricity, balancing objects and more! Highlights include an electrostatic juggler, fun mirrors, water tornado races, floating ping pong balls. Children will also be able to make colorful balancing butterflies, and static electric charge detectors.
Come participate in an extraordinary take home project that involves the Physics behind Air, Wave, and Sound!
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.
