Fifth-grade students from Poth Elementary School boarded a bus March 2 to travel to Austin for Explore UT, an open house hosted by the Texas Natural Science Center. GT students in third and fourth grades also attended the sessions Poth chose, which focused on Engineering Expeditions.

Small groups of students visited many of the 400 interactive exhibits and participated in classroom activities on the college campus. According to Explore UT’s website, the event “offers a glimpse into university life.”

Research shows that pre-teens who visit a college campus are more likely to be comfortable with attending college. According to college admissions consultant Joyce Reed, “By the time young people are juniors in high school, the very word ‘college’ has become associated with pressure, fear, and questions of identity. ... Fourth graders generally have a home and family orientation and security that can allow them to become comfortable with any environment they visit often.”

Students had fun catapulting balloons, making polymer snakes, and launching rockets. A highlight of the trip was the stadium’s gift shop, where students could buy a souvenir to take home. The children enjoyed being Longhorns for a day.
