Explore UT on April 22
Annually, Gilbert Elementary School takes its students to "Explore UT" in Austin, which is a large open house where students can explore the university campus and enjoy lots of hands on activities. This year, the school was forced to cancel their trip due to inclement weather. Instead of waiting until next year to 'explore UT', the school is planning to bring UT to their own school on Saturday, April 22nd from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Alex Kirkpatrick is currently setting up a DNA extraction booth and needs volunteers. If you would like to participate in this great event, please contact Alex at Kirkpatricka@UTHSCSA.edu as soon as possible.
