Open Door at West campus welcomes curious future Sun Devils

Sunday, February 2, 2020

Knowledge seekers had quite a treat on Saturday as Arizona State University's West campus showed off its labs and learning spaces at the first of four free ASU open houses this month. 

The West campus kicked off this year's Open Door series, sparking the imagination of children and their families with activities including making paper helicopters, tie-dyeing T-shirts, creating "lava lamps," and learning about the organs of the human body. Plenty of fun games were on tap, too, with a Rubik's Cube competition, board games, balloon animals and high fives from 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. 8
  • Tempe campus: 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22
  • Polytechnic campus: 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29

Learn more about what's in store at each campus, including information on the free app that can help visitors map out the activities they want to visit. Free tickets are available in advance online. 

Check ASU Now after each event for photo galleries of the action.
