Becoming Texas Audio Guides

Competing Interests of the American Indians, Spanish and French Colonists in Texas

Sixty-one fifth-grade students at St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Austin researched the competing interests of the American Indians, Spanish, and French Colonists in Texas. Their research was compiled into an audio guide to complement the Museum's first-floor gallery, Becoming Texas.

The audio guide can be accessed via QR codes in the first-floor gallery on Texas History Day, April 15, 2023.

Every year in April, hundreds of students come to the Bullock Museum and the University of Texas at Austin to compete in the Texas History Day. These junior high and high school students show their research skills by creating projects like exhibits, documentary films, websites, papers, and performances.

The Bullock Museum wanted to extend the Texas History Day spirit of celebrating students being excited by history and partnered with elementary students at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School to showcase another project that highlights students engaging in researching historical topics, using primary sources, and creating innovative projects with their findings.
