ASU Open Door 2018
Arizona State University hopes to spark the next generation’s imagination with ASU Open Door, a signature event of the Arizona SciTech Festival. During the free Open Door events, adults and children of all ages are invited to take a sneak peek at the learning spaces that help make ASU the most innovative university in the nation.
The four-campus event celebrates the power of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) with more than 340 hands-on activities, performances, demonstrations and games. The campuses open their doors on different nights:
• Jan. 26 — Polytechnic campus
• Feb. 2 — Downtown Phoenix campus
• Feb. 10 — West campus
• Feb. 24 — Tempe campus
“What makes the ASU Open Door event unique is that we open the four campus locations to the community and allow them to enter the spaces normally closed to the public,” said Darci Nagy, ASU special events manager. “Visitors are able to go into classrooms and talk to faculty and students who are excited about what they’re working on. Not only are they inside these classroom spaces, there are activities where children — and adults — can learn from hands-on activities.”
