BRIT Goes OLE! with Nature Play:

OLE! Texas is an initiative of the Texas Department of State Health Services, in partnership with other state agencies, universities, and organizations across Texas. Outdoor Learning Environment (OLE! Texas) focuses on improving outdoor spaces at childcare centers. This initiative incorporates design elements such as looping paths, vegetable gardens, native plants and open-ended play, to enable young children to be active and feel comfortable in nature while developing motor skills.

BRIT has been asked to lead the North Texas Coalition that models creative nature play in the Metroplex and helps support the social emotional learning of area children. Join us to learn more about the role BRIT is taking to improve outdoor learning environments and how you can help.

About Research Lecture Series

The BRIT Lecture Series is designed to create community wide conversation about a diverse range of important and rapidly developing topics. This series gives scientists and speakers a forum for sharing the most current information about their areas of expertise and allows the public to interact with leading members of the local, national, and international scientific community.

Our Lecture Series is made up of Lunchtime Lectures and Research Seminars. Lunchtime Lectures take place the first Tuesday of each month, February – July and September – November, from noon - 1pm in the BRIT Commons (**Now held virtually until further notice***). Research Seminars take place periodically throughout the year and are scheduled based on the availability of our in-house and visiting researchers.

All events are free and open to the public. Please watch this page and our social media channels for announcements of upcoming Lunchtime Lectures and Researcher Seminars.
