More than 2,600 visitors joined us for Explore UT Day on Saturday, March 4, 2017.

Held annually at The University of Texas at Austin, Explore UT aims to inform students, parents, teachers, and community members from across the state about the importance of a public research institution and higher education in Texas. The day-long event invites Texans of all ages to experience robust research experiences, hands-on demonstrations and experiments, and participate in the richness of the university's scholarship and knowledge. Learn more.
