The CCS Mobile Training Center proudly introduces two new products coming to your schools: Channel One News InterActiv and SAFE system, security alert for education.
A suspended garden of lightweight translucent forms made of multiple layers of laser cut plexiglas. These computer generated blossoms pulse in response to local real time data such as river water flows, barometric pressure, CO2 levels and air particulate readings. In addition, the environment reacts dramatically to people passing under it through responsive sound and quickening light pulses. What music will you create as you walk through? Created by Mary Neubaeur and Todd Ingalls.
Stop by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) Visitors Center in the Interdisciplinary A (INTDSA) building and watch the staff target images of the Moon in the Science Operation Center. You will also be able to view the Moon through telescopes (weather permitting), talk to LROC staff and students who can answer your questions about the Moon and provide informal tours. You can also see the latest high-resolution LROC images on display in the hallway and lobby.
Learning Support Services in the School of International Letters and Cultures presents its new “project-based learning lab” – the SILC LSS Collaboratory at this open house event.
Come check out sustainability and how you can make a positive impact in your own neighborhood and city. Activities from the Global Institute of Sustainability and School of Sustainability will include an onsite Caricature Artist to capture your best look for your own personal souvenir, a Global-Traveler pose photo, computer games for children, hands-on displays about the ecology of the city, and interactive models of water use in the Valley, as well as other materials about how ASU is contributing to local and global sustainability.
Children or kids at heart: Roll up your sleeves for hands-on fun with science! Simple, fun science will bring physics, chemistry, biology and engineering into a child’s realm of understanding. Zone will feature glow-in-the dark coloring, building with Legos, peering through microscopes and much more.
Girls Have IT Day! is held annually in March to encourage, engage, and excite middle school girls in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). Studies show that girls lose interested in STEAM from 6th to 9th grade and this event helps keep girls engaged and open to opportunities. Using a powerful mentorship model, girls work with hands-on activities to learn more about STEAM. Join us at ASU to try a sample activity and to learn more!

Engineering faculty and staff will guide youngsters in developing a roller coaster car and challenge the kids to successfully carry a "payload" on the roller coaster tracks.
Dr. Mina Johnson (Psychology and Learning Sciences Institute) and her lab show off their newest KINECT motion-sensing games for science. Your body becomes the controller as you FEED AN ALIEN and learn about nutrition, WIN A BIKE RACE CHANGING GEARS, and practice sustainability building a virtual SOLAR OVEN!
Rub shoulders with some of the world’s leading scientists, engineers and innovators. They’ll be roaming the halls wearing “Ask Me About … “ buttons. You won’t want to miss out on this opportunity!
Presented by the School of Mathematical & Statistical Sciences and the Mathematical, Computational & Modeling Sciences Center.
Experience the artistic side of mathematics and the wonders that can be created. Join the School of Mathematical & Statistical Sciences to create math artwork in our outdoor studio space. From tessellations to string "theory," paper sculpture and more.
Tyler Mall directly in front of PSA 116 and PSA 118.
Join Assistant Professor Alice Daer and English students for a fun test of your Internet culture IQ. How does a video go "viral?" What's the most popular Tweet of all time and why?
