The Earth and the universe beyond belong to all of us — not just to scientists and researchers. At ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration, we are committed to sharing our growing understanding of Earth and space with the community.
We’re here to engage with and help train the next generation of explorers and citizen scientists, and to impart our knowledge to anyone who’s interested in these exciting subjects. Every day at SESE, our scientists are learning something new, and we look forward to sharing what we learn with you.
The School has over 30,000 visitors annually to its campus facilities.
