Meteorites at ASU Open Door – Feb 24

Join us to celebrate the sciences, engineering, humanities and the arts with ASU and Arizona families, at ASU’s annual Open Door event!

1 PM to 5 PM, Saturday, February 24, 2024.

Wonder what you will see and do? Check out a photo gallery of previous years’ events, attended by more than 2,500 adventure seekers.

As part of the Open Door event, the Buseck Center for Meteorite Studies will host an Open House featuring our Meteorite Gallery, rarities from the vault, and touchable meteorites from the Carleton B. Moore Meteorite Collection!

Scientists will be on hand to answer questions and the Buseck Center for Meteorite Studies will have staff available to inspect potential meteorite specimens in person!  Meteorite enthusiasts can take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn if their unusual sample is indeed a meteorite.  Only one sample will be identified per person.  Buseck Center for Meteorite Studies staff will only be available for this special walk-in service during the Open Door event.

A signature event of the Arizona SciTech Festival, ASU’s Open Door offers a window into the creative energy that powers a world-class university, with more than 100 interactive activities hosted by ASU student volunteers, faculty and staff. Teenagers, children, parents, teachers, alumni, entrepreneurs and the just-plain-curious can cross doorways into laboratories, living collections, museums, and experience artistic performances, talks and hands-on activities, and discovery.

Step out, explore and celebrate Arizona’s and ASU’s leadership in science, technology, innovation and creative enterprise!
