The Ronald Greeley Center for Planetary Studies (RGCPS), also known as the Space Photography Laboratory (SPL), is a NASA Regional Planetary Information Facility (RPIF). Visit and see selected images of archived and current planetary missions, as well as plasma displays and maps of interest. Come and explore!
The center was renamed to honor Dr. Greeley, who came to ASU in 1977 and propelled the ASU Planetary Geology Group into a tremendous legacy of exploration that continues today with Curiosity on Mars! Come and explore!
Zone 4 | Bateman Physical Science Building, F Wing, 5th floor AND ISTB 4, 2nd floor
Visitors will be introduced to interactive image and video technologies and concepts in visual perception. Attendees can explore how engineers/scientists can exploit visual perception in designing technologies, gadgets and products.
Zone 3 | GWC 439
Interactive word games for all ages designed by Regents' Professor and poet Alberto Ríos. Prizes for correct answers!
Come take part in the solar energy revolution and work alongside the scientists and engineers of ASU’s Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technology lab to explore the science behind solar energy! At this booth families will be able to watch a solar powered chain reaction machine in action.
Zone 3 | ECG 140 eSpace
3D-IMAGINE: 3D-IMage Arrays to Graphically Implement New Education
Zone 4 | ISTB 4 Lobby area
Hungry from all of the fun of the Night of the Open Door? Visit the Origins Project Club Snack Table where you can purchase a variety of food and beverages. All proceeds benefit the student-run Origins Project Club. You can also receive information about the exciting science-focused public programming and cutting-edge research being facilitated by the Origins Project at ASU.
Zone 2 | Cady Mall, near the intersection with Tyler Mall
Get hands on experience with robots involved in planetary exploration research! Learn about the science, technology and engineering behind these robots. Visitors will also be able to interact with circuits and micro-controllers to make LED's and other projects come to life!
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!
School of International Letters and Cultures' Juan Pablo Gil-Osle, assistant professor of Spanish, will host two Flamenco guitar workshops. Please bring your guitar to one or both for a lesson in Spanish Flamenco music and culture.
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
Topic: The Moon is a fantastic place for science, exploration and grandeur! Come see latest results from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera: volcanoes, scarps, craters, flows, and human artifacts!
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.
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.
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!
