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.
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.
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!

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!
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!
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.
School of International Letters and Cultures' classics expert Almira Poudrier and The Design School's Thomas Morton lead a guided virtual tour of ancient Rome using a flythrough of the digital model Rome Reborn. Poudrier and Morton give a few historical and architectural details about the sites visited, and provide a short discussion of the development of digital technologies in classical scholarship and in teaching classics, with reference to older models like vRoma, popular Online resources like Google Earth, and to recent scholarship on this topic.
Be part of a demonstration where you can use EEG brain signals to move the mouse on your computer screen.
First we record examples of your EEG signals when you imagine moving your arm up.
Then we record your EEG signals when you imagine moving your arm down.
We then assign each EEG recording to a particular mouse movement.
With a little practice, you can learn to move the cursor up and down on your computer screen!
On our habitable Earth, we find Life in some very extreme places! What kind of Life can be found BEYOND Earth?
ASU and the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) are engaged in many missions to search for Life on other worlds. This includes the planet Mars, where the Curiosity rover is searching for the elements of Life on Mount Sharp RIGHT NOW!
Come and visit Dr. Ariel Anbar, the Astrobiology Team and bring your imagination! Learn about extremophiles and design and create your own alien! It will be OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Christie Digital Uses Projection Mapping to Bring a Building to Life
Projection mapping is an exciting projection technique that uses specialized software and other technologies to warp and blend projected images so they fit perfectly on irregularly-shaped “screens” such as buildings, interior spaces and natural landscapes.
