The fun kept rolling Saturday with the second of Arizona State University's Open Door events, where members of the community were invited to check out the exciting work being done by the schools and units of the Downtown Phoenix campus.

Visitors to the campus learned about drone piloting, had a chance to hold a sheep brain, crafted origami cats, got hearing screenings, saw a Van de Graaff generator in action and uncovered the wonders of DNA.

If you missed out, don't worry: There are two more free Open Door events:

  • West campus: 1–5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16
  • Tempe campus: 1–6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23

Read more about what's in store at each campus here, including information on the free app that can help visitors map out the activities they want to visit. Get free tickets in advance online.
