Arizona Experience

Welcome to the Arizona Experience (arizonaexperience.org), an online reference established to commemorate 100 years of statehood. Each page on the Arizona Experience engages the user with a multimedia-rich showcase of the people, places, and events that defined our past and are shaping our future. This free resource is available to anyone, anytime, with special features for students, educators, and travelers. Teachers be sure to visit the Teacher's Center (http://arizonaexperience.org/teachers-center) for STEM resources.

You've Never Seen Arizona Like This, Thousands of multimedia assets—including current and historic photographs, audio and video samples, extensive mapping functions and interactive timelines—engross users of all ages. Materials from archives, museums, and special collections appear in interactive features designed especially for the site.  Over a dozen interactive maps, custom built or featured courtesy of state agencies such as Arizona Game and Fish, bring hands-on geographical and spatial guidance to a spectrum of subjects. Timelines, games, audio and video files, and location-based tours provide a fun, fresh way to access knowledge.

For example, you can visit Arizona’s iconic landscapes, listen to the oral histories of descendants of early explorers, settlers, and miners, or discover how our leading innovations in biotechnology, alternative energy, and high-tech products are creating a promising tomorrow.
