Snow Week


The Chillest Things to Do in Phoenix

Every December, Arizona Science Center fills its outdoor courtyard with snow for a week of thrilling science and experimentation. Bundle up and join us for all the outdoor fun—building snow people, tossing snowballs and zipping down our slippery snow hill. Head inside for an icy experience with demonstrations and activities that explore states of matter, weather and the winter season. It’s the coolest week to learn about science! 

Snow Week at Arizona Science Center is generously supported by Subaru.


Science at Home

Try these fun STEM activities that are all about snow. All projects use easy-to-find materials and most take an hour or less to complete. 

DIY Nature Journal

A nature journal will encourage you to observe the natural world and document your findings. Grab a few supplies and head out into your yard, a park or a hiking trail and discover more of the world around you.
