ASU Open Door launches: Robotics, flight simulators, rockets and more

January 28, 2018

Polytechnic campus kicks off this year's Open Door events — four free open houses through the end of February

The Polytechnic campus started off this year's Open Door — four free open houses through the end of February — on Friday, welcoming crowds of visitors and giving them the chance to peek into Arizona State University's learning spaces.

Families launched paper rockets, experimented with chemistry and physics, tried out flight simulators, got to know a few robots, and even had a chance to create Rube Goldberg machines.

If you missed the fun, don't worry: There are three more free Open Door events in February:

  • Downtown Phoenix campus: 4–8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2
  • West campus: 1–6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10
  • Tempe campus: 1–6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24

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