Welcome to Arkansas State University!



This year, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein turns 200! To celebrate the bicentennial year of this unforgettable story, ASU Museum will present a Scary STEM event complete with Frankenstein-themed activities. This scary fun will happen Oct. 23, 2018 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.


As they participate in various “lab” experiments, guests will discover what blood is made of, and they’ll measure electricity found in their own bodies. Further activities will encourage visitors to probe inside a frozen brain (made of ice), use simple materials to build a working battery, and much more.


Scary STEM is made possible by the National Informal STEM Education (NISE) Network’s teaching kits, Let’s Do Science and Frankenstein200.  Digital versions of these teaching kits may be found and downloaded from NISE Network’s website, www.nisenet.org.
