Arizona State University is closely following updates and public health recommendations surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). At this time, all upcoming on-campus ASU visit experiences and Sun Devil Days are canceled and will be held virtually instead.

Bateman Physical Sciences Center

The George M. Bateman Physical Sciences Center, wings A-H, is named for the first faculty member with a doctoral degree to be hired at Arizona State Teachers College. Hired by President A.J. Matthews in 1927, Bateman had a daunting assignment: develop the entire science program for the college. There were no college-level courses in biology, chemistry or physics at the time. He taught at ASU for 41 years. As chairman of the college athletic board, he helped guide the construction of Sun Devil Stadium and Packard Stadium.

The F Wing of Bateman is home to the Department of Physics and some faculty in the School of Earth and Space Exploration. Several floors in F Wing are currently (2018) being renovated. However, the lobby contains a public display of rock types, and it also has one of the world's largest Foucault pendulums, which measures the rotation of the Earth.
