The Earth and Space Exploration day is a free annual event held at the Bateman Physical Sciences F-wing on the Tempe main campus and sponsored each year by the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE). This event is part open house and part science festival – featuring unique STEM activities targeting students ages five and up, families, educators and anyone interested in exploring Earth and space alongside real scientists. Visitors enjoyed over 35 hands-on activities as well as a guided field trips to Tempe Butte, special talks from SESE scientists, and tours to several of the School’s facilities. The Follow the Elements project presented the hands-on activity, “Search for a Habitable World” where children could design their own alien to inhabit on of the planets within our solar system (Figure 1-2). This all day event attracted approximately 1,500 visitors.
