UT hosted approximately 130 high school students and their parents Saturday, March 24, for a day-long research event. Research Day, co-hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, allowed these students to explore research and creative spaces in the areas of study they expressed an interest in.
Attendees took up to three separate tours during the day, which highlighted research areas and majors that they have shown interest in pursuing. They chose from 40 different sessions that included tours of laboratory spaces, studios, and classrooms. During these tours, students and parents had the opportunity to meet and speak with faculty and current students in that field.
