3D-IMAGINE: 3D-IMage Arrays to Graphically Implement New Education
Zone 4 | ISTB 4 Lobby area
Love playing video games?! Ever wonder how to create your own?! YOU CAN! And we can help you get started! Microsoft provides free tools for download that, with some coding knowledge, let you create any game you can think of for the PC or Xbox 360. Stop by our table to see a real prototype in action and learn how to get started at home.
Zone 3 | ECG 150
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!
Zone 3 | EDF 120 eSpace
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
Open house at the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS)! Experience first-hand what it was like to live in Medieval times. Try shooting the catapult, see medieval costumes and weaponry, try on actual chain mail, helmets, and the heavy weight of a sword! See members of the AZ Renaissance Festival in costume and a demonstration of Scottish Highland Dance!
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!
Zone 4 | ISTB 4 2nd floor
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.
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.
