Discover research at ASU.
Hear more from President Michael Crow of ASU and President Chevy Humphrey of the Arizona Science Center on the importance of this partnership to Arizona.
Arizona State University (ASU) and Arizona Science Center are partnering to share dynamic science happenings at the university with the Arizona community, and to motivate and inspire K-12 students to pursue post-secondary education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines.
ASU measures itself by those it includes, not by those it excludes, and pursues research that contributes to the public good, assuming major responsibility for the economic, social and cultural vitality of the communities that surround it. Through this partnership with Arizona Science Center, ASU will be able to further advance the goals of the New American University: access, excellence and impact. The Science Center serves more than half a million visitors annually, including 140,000 school children. Through the Center's audiences, ASU will be able to further its commitment to enhancing discovery within the Arizona community.
Together, ASU and the Science Center set the standard for a university and science center collaboration, both nationally and internationally. ASU and the Center will plan joint exhibits, educational activities, lecture series, IMAX® shows, planetarium shows, demonstrations, and more. We envision a long-term partnership that provides a continuous flow of innovative research and educational activities, projects, and exhibits for K-12 teachers, students and the general public.
