Homecoming Weekend

Nov. 1, 2019

Join us for UAZ Homecoming Weekend, starting on Friday, November 1st and going through Sunday, November 3rd with special pricing for everyone: $5 exhibits admission and $5 planetarium shows!

Don’t miss Flandrau at the Research, Development and Innovation tent on the University mall all day on Saturday, November 2nd from 9:30 to 1:30. You can learn about what we offer at our booth, then stroll down to our building and marvel at our Sharks exhibit, explore the planets in our Solar System exhibit, and experience one of our amazing planetarium shows!

The University of Arizona leads the way in many fields of science. At Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium, we tell the stories of UA’s science achievements, the stories that set UA apart. We invite the campus community to come explore all the science we have to offer, from Sharks to Space, and see why Space Is Wildcat Country!

Special Pricing
Only $5 for exhibits and $5 for planetarium shows on Saturday, November 2nd.

Guided Tours and Special Arizona Shows
Flandrau will offer scheduled public guided Tours that we call Flandrau Guided Tour: Arizona Science Wonders. We’ve given these special Tours for group visits before, but we’ve never offered them to the general public, and Family Weekend is the perfect time to start! Sign up for this special tour on our website soon!

The Flandrau Guided Tour: Arizona Science Wonders gives you the stories behind the exhibits. You’ll discover how the University of Arizona became a world leader in astronomy, earth science, ecology, and planetary science – and why we say with pride “Space Is Wildcat Country.” In addition to the guided exhibits tour, participants will also see a private showing of Touring the Solar System: UA Edition, a specail planetarium show not available to the general public.

Reserve your space on the Arizona Science Wonders Tour, offered on Friday, November 1st at 2pm and on Sunday, November 3rd at 11am. Tickets available below!
Member discount does not apply to Arizona Science Wonder Tours.

New Mars Planetarium Show
Our new Mars show, Next Stop: Mars will fly you to the red planet and give you the scoop on all that we’ve discovered there. The University of Arizona has played a role in every single NASA mission to Mars! And we’ve even led some of them. You’ll learn why Mars has captivated humans for millennia, what the new science tells us, and what it would take to send humans to Mars.

Join the fun at our Homecoming Weekend celebration! Flandrau!
