Solar Month


March is APS Solar Month at Arizona Science Center! Throughout the month, explore the power of our nearest star—the Sun! This star gives us light, energy and heat, making life on Earth possible. Investigate the Sun through hands-on activities and dazzling demonstrations. Times and activities vary daily.

​All APS Solar Month activities are included with general admission to the Science Center. Additional tickets are required for the Irene P. Flinn Giant Screen Theater, Dorrance Planetarium and featured exhibition. Children under 3 are always FREE.
