As if the drive up Catalina Highway couldn’t get any better, the University of Arizona’s College of Science has produced the Mt. Lemmon Science Tour app to make the trip even more spectacular. Shipherd Reed, Operations and Communication Manager for the Flaundrau Science Center, will be on hand to present and demonstrate this exciting and educational new service.

The Mt. Lemmon Science Tour app is free and engages users with the natural science of Southern Arizona as they drive the Catalina Highway and take in the enchanting Sonoran Desert and on up to the “Sky Island” mountains above 9000 feet in elevation. Don’t know an app from a hole in the ground?

An “app” is a software application that can be downloaded to your phone or mobile device, and provides additional functions for you while you’re on the go. Some apps have to be purchased; thanks to the UA College of Science, this app is free!

The Mt. Lemmon Science app also features maps, graphics, and animations that help explain the science of our region.

Presentations at 12 PM and 2 PM.
