A Day in the Life of…Field Trip Days

Wondering what a typical day looks like for a Fulton Schools of Engineering student?

A Day in the Life Of…Field Trip Days provides students an opportunity to explore engineering through hands-on STEM activities and tours of various facilities at ASU. Current Fulton Schools of Engineering undergrads will serve as campus ambassadors and provide guests an up-close and personal glimpse into student life at ASU.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up?

Pre-registration is required. Walk-ins are not allowed.
Teachers must register their group online and upload a registration form signed by their principal. Download a blank Fieldtrip Registration Form and click on the blue register button to be taken to the portal. 

What happens after I register online?

You will receive an automated confirmation e-mail that contains a link to your registration details and a modify registration link. Please save this e-mail. Additional details for the day of the field trip will be sent out 3 weeks beforehand and a reminder e-mail will also go out days before your visit.

Additionally, every student must have a parental consent form signed by their parent or legal guardian in order to participate. Please collect the forms and bring them with you on the day of your field trip. Download the form in English or Spanish.

I registered but I still have not received a confirmation.

If you do not receive an initial confirmation after 24 hours of registering, please check your spam/junk folder. You may also contact our office at engineeringoutreach@asu.edu.

Is there a limit to the number of students I can bring?

The minimum number of students you can bring is 5 and the maximum is 100. Due to maximum capacity in some facilities, participants will be divided into groups of 30.

How many chaperones should we bring?

Our preferred ratio is 1 adult for every 10 students.

Can homeschooled students participate?

We welcome homeschool families to our field trips but encourage you to coordinate the trip with other families to meet the minimum.

Meals are not part of the program but your group is welcome to stay and use ASU’s indoor or outdoor seating areas for lunch. Students may brown bag or purchase food from the cafeteria.

My group is longer able to participate in the field trip. Can I cancel?

If your plans change, please e-mail us as soon as possible so that we may offer the opportunity to another group or school. A minimum of three weeks’ notice is required. A no-show or failure to cancel with appropriate notice will result in a $150 cancellation fee.
