The Imaginarium of South Texas is a current partner in TexNET, the Texas Network of Exhibit-based learning and Teaching is funded by the National Science Foundation and designed to create a network that will build leadership capacity in all partners through exhibit and staff resource exchange. We are partnered with the San Francisco Exploratorium, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, Tyler’s Discovery Science Place and Lubbock’s Science Spectrum.
This unique collaborative provides state-of-the-art learning experiences to the rural and Hispanic audience by providing interactive science exhibits and training in inquiry learning methods with the goal of stronger learning opportunities within the communities served by the smaller museums. The exhibits we have hosted as a result of this partnership began in October 2005 and included the exhibit sets “Sound Around”, “Wild Weather”, and “Move It!”. Each set is fabricated and developed by the Exploratorium. Only through a partnership such as this one are we in Laredo able to experience this fabulous exploration of scientific phenomena.
