"AN EPIC JOURNEY" @ ASU's ESE DAY
Earth and Space Exploration day is a free annual fall event hosted by the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) on ASU’s Tempe campus inside/outside ISTB 4 (click on ISTB4 for map). The SESE community offers special science-related activities from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. for students age five and up, families, educators and anyone interested in exploring Earth and space. One of the biggest attractions is ISTB 4 with its Gallery of Scientific Exploration offering a variety of interactive exhibits and the Marston Exploration Theater, which will be running 3-D astronomy shows. Visitors can also see a replica of Curiosity Mars rover, explore "A" Mountain (Tempe Butte) on a guided field trip, bring rock samples for Dr. Rock to examine, and so much more!
Make sure to come check out EPIC's booth titled "An EPIC Journey," where we will explore a rock's journey through the plate tectonic cycle, from birth via melting at a mid-ocean ridge, through subduction and remelting in a mantle wedge to form arc magmas.
