About the Event
A signature event in the Arizona SciTech Festival, Night of the Open Door is based on a long-running, portal-busting event held each year in Berlin, Germany. There are hands-on activities, laboratory tours, book readings, movies featuring ASU scientists, and access to museums and world-class plant and animal collections. Attend a multimedia performance, participate in a trebuchet demonstration or talk about volcanoes, Navajo stories of the stars and modern astronomy. Who knows, you might even meet a Nobel Laureate or a Pulitzer Prize-winning author? It is a night to get behind the scenes and engage with the creative invention that is ASU’s signature blend of science, art and the humanities.
Spearheaded by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, with partners - the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and the Biodesign Institute - there is something for everyone. So whether you are a kid or a kid-at-heart, a prospective or current student, K-12 educator, life-long learner, alumnus, a Sparky fan, entrepreneur or curious how to build your very own “Birthquake,” this is the one evening a year where you can step in and discover what inspires our faculty and staff, artistic, educational and research partners and puts our students in the driver's seat for some of the most innovative solutions and inspiring discoveries in the world.
