Virtual Student Program: Discovering the Region of Texas

Online Program

April 28, 2023 10:00am - 11:00am

Connect with a Museum Educator and representatives from Texas Parks and Wildlife during this live, virtual event.

Event Details

Where are the different geographic regions of Texas? How have people adapted to the landscapes, plants, and animals that define Texas? How has Texas’s diverse geography been captured by artists from across the state? A Museum educator will use photographs, paintings, and virtual visits to a Texas State Park to investigate Texas’s natural history and inspiring beauty from the Gulf Coast to the Guadalupe Mountains.

This Spotlight Session serves as the debut of our newest student Distance Learning program, featuring the Art of Texas State Parks exhibition. This special session will include special guests from Texas Parks and Wildlife who will take us virtually to Mustang Island State Park to get an up-close look at the plants and animals in the coastal region of Texas. Students will get the opportunity to ask the park ranger questions during a live Q and A.

Register by April 26th to secure your spot. Three schools may register to be interactive and will respond to questions throughout the program as well as be able to ask questions to the presenter at the end of the program. All other sites will be non-interactive.
