Open Door Returns IRL! (In Real Life)

We are back in January and February 2023, in-person and virtually using ASU Sync. Join us at one of our four Phoenix area campuses, or online for interactive exhibits produced by ASU professors, staff and students.

Once a year ASU throws open their doors and invites the community inside for the Open Door events on each campus. Plus new for 2023, ASU Sync immerses you in vibrant learning experiences whether you're across the globe or sitting right in the classroom!

Bring the whole family, make it a class trip, or Scout troop adventure, just be sure to invite friends of all ages! Experience ASU laboratories, classrooms, living collections, museums and discover why it was named the most innovative university in the nation eight years in a row. ASU Faculty is out of this world! Whether it’s deep below the ocean depths, high above exploring Mars, or everywhere in between.

Enjoy everything ASU has to offer — Find your passion! Explore science, the arts, engineering, humanities, sustainability and more--in a totally immersive and interactive environment. Our faculty and students work together to create life-saving tests and tools to fight viruses, nurture the next generation of robotics researchers, learn with award-winning broadcasters, grow algae as a renewable and sustainable source of oil for biodiesel, and much more! 

If you can't make it to one of our campuses in person, join our virtual campus and learn just as our 80,000+ online global students do every day. Participate in hundreds of interactive, hands-on activities created just for you by our faculty and students from the comfort of your own home.

As a signature event of the Arizona SciTech Festival, ASU invites you and your family to discover all things science, technology, engineering, arts and math. ASU Open Door celebrates the fact that kids today are curious, tech-savvy and more involved in their own educational experiences than ever before! We invite you to interact, learn and grow with us.
