APS Solar Month

March Is APS Solar Month at Arizona Science Center

The sun gives us light, energy and heat, all of which are vital to life on Earth. Arizona Science Center celebrates the center of our solar system every March, during APS Solar Month. With special demonstrations and exciting, hands-on activities all month long, visitors get to investigate the power of the sun and brighten up their day.

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 our featured exhibition. Children under 3 are always FREE.
