What are DiscoverE Days?

For the last four years, ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering has hosted thousands of 3rd- 8th grade students and their teachers at ASU’s Tempe and Polytechnic campuses. Students engage in hands-on engineering design activities and explore various types of engineering at the expo hosted by engineering students and faculty.

On Friday, February 12, 2016 (Tempe campus) and Friday, April 1, 2016 (Polytechnic campus), we will again welcome students from third through eighth grade from around the Phoenix metropolitan area to discover engineering and technology.

The event is free and promises fun for all!

Registration is now full.

Both the Polytechnic and Tempe campus DiscoverE Day field trip days have reached capacity.

This is not your average field trip day.

From innovations in health, energy and the environment to advances in computer systems and software and sustainable building practices, our engineers are busy. You’ll meet new students and experienced faculty who are all working on engineering solutions to problems that we face every day.

Did you know that buildings consume one-third of the world’s energy usage? Learn about new materials and building methods to make more efficient cities and infrastructure.

What kind of new medical product would you design to make people’s lives easier and safer? Visit our state-of-the-art biomedical engineering design center and learn first-hand how new products are developed.

Arizona has a lot of sunny days – how can we better develop solar technologies? Join researchers from the QESST engineering research center to build a solar-powered STEAM machine to learn more.

A community-wide celebration of science and engineering

azscitechfest_250The Engineering Open House is part of a broad, community-wide celebration of science and engineering. Other events you might enjoy are held throughout February and March during the Arizona SciTech Fest, a state-wide celebration of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM or STEAM when you include the arts).
