STEM Girl Day - Landmarks Scavenger Hunt
Discover STEM through art on campus while participating in STEM Girl Day at UT Austin.
As you navigate through the open spaces of STEM Girl Day, view Landmarks' public art collection from a STEM perspective:
- How many beams, boats, or mountains make up the works of art?
- How is the art made? What materials were used and why?
- What engineering or physics was used to create the sculptures?
- What other science, technology, engineering, or math might have been used to design, create, build, manufacture, or place the art?

Works of public art have the capacity to resonate deeply, stimulate curiosity, and inspire the imagination in unexpected ways. At The University of Texas at Austin, the public art collection is one of the most distinguishing features of the main campus, shaping impressions and offering a distinctive setting for memorable experiences.
As the university’s public art program, Landmarks enriches the lives of students and visitors by presenting art that is broadly accessible and free to all. Some fifty works of modern and contemporary art are throughout the 433-acre campus and viewed by thousands of people every day.
