ISTB 4 Gallery of Scientific Exploration (GSE)

Gallery exhibits on the first two floors of ISTB 4 are open to the public to explore on their own. Some exhibits may be staffed by student docents.The GSE houses interactive exhibits that engage visitors in the history of scientific exploration (from the voyage of HMS Beagle to NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory) and invite them to contemplate future voyages of discovery. The space is outfitted with kiosk-style exhibits and large-format, high-definition monitors that display video from earth-observing satellites and robotic probes of other worlds. For general questions related to the GSE, call 480-727-2868.

For more information, see the interactive exhibits (PDF).

K-12 Field Trip Program

Our half-day enrichment experience includes a 3-D astronomy show in the Marston Exploration Theater, along with a schedule of activities built around small group rotational modules, each designed to reinforce the spirit of scientific inquiry and exploration. Activities are correlated to the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards.
