Every day at The University of Texas at Austin, there is discovery and creativity. On March 4, 2017, students, teachers, parents and community members from across the state are invited to come to campus for Explore UT – an exciting day-long event where visitors to our campus can experience hands-on research and scholarship from UT Austin.
As Longhorns for the day, visitors will see the life-changing learning that Texas’ flagship university provides. At Explore UT, the creativity and knowledge produced by our world-class faculty will be on display, and students will be able to participate in activities such as designing and testing their own rollercoasters, creating virtual worlds or channeling the spirit of Shakespeare through live performances.
Parents, teachers and community members may also partake in campus tours, earn professional development credit and visit UT's world-class museums and collections.
My hope is that whether you're five years old, five years out of college or a family of five, you will leave the Forty Acres inspired by the richness of The University of Texas at Austin.
