Arizona State University’s Polytechnic campus recently welcomed approximately 3,000 members of the public during an ASU Open Doors event. People were able to explore the 600-acre campus, state-of-the-art labs and learning experiences such as competitive skeleton-building, flight simulators and indoor farming. Alumni Dan Pratt watched his son build a hexagon-shaped tower out of marshmallows and spaghetti at the event, saying “It gives the kids neat things to think about and cool ideas to consider. We always have fun.”

“ASU Open Door is an opportunity for us to throw open our doors and showcase all the amazing things happening at the university on a daily basis,” said Darci Nagy, special events manager of ASU’s Office of University Events and Protocol. "We invite the community in to get a behind-the-scenes look at what we are working on, including tours of labs, research facilities and dozens of hands-on activities that the public typically doesn’t have access to.”
