The heart of the city comes alive Saturday as ASU schools welcome the community
The Downtown Phoenix campus continued this year's Open Door series on Saturday, welcoming visitors for a look inside Arizona State University's learning spaces.
From hearing screenings and science experiments to arts and crafts and bouncy castles, the event gave hundreds of attendees a chance to spark their creativity, plus look at the colleges, schools, programs and student groups that help make ASU the most innovative university in the country.
