Crowds of curious children and their families got a chance to peek into Arizona State University's learning spaces on Saturday at the first of four free open houses this month.
The Polytechnic campus kicked off this year's Open Door with scores of intriguing activities, including an interactive look at thermal imaging cameras, a tour of its robotics labs, turns in the flight simulator, paper rocket launches and, of course, Sparky.
If you missed the fun, don't worry: There are three more free Open Door events:
- Downtown Phoenix campus: 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9
- West campus: 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16
- Tempe campus: 1-6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23
