(March 31, 2010)--UTSA student Adam Barnett is in the new Disney-Touchstone film "The Last Song" starring Miley Cyrus. The San Antonio native will be available for autographs and conversation from 2:30 to 3 p.m., Saturday, April 3 at the Santikos Palladium IMAX Theatre at the Rim shopping center at Interstate 10 and La Cantera Parkway.

A ticket to the 3 p.m. showing of "The Last Song" at the Palladium gets you into the auditorium for autographs and Q&A.

Barnett was born in San Antonio in 1987. While attending Sandra Day O'Connor High School in Helotes, Texas, he participated in theater arts and film critique classes. After graduation, he attended Northwest Vista College. While attending NWVC, he worked at Sea World San Antonio as a cast member of the acrobatic show "Viva!"

Barnett currently attends UTSA and plans to graduate with a bachelor's degree in nutrition and health. He has been a member of the university's Actors Guild. In May 2009, a mutual friend introduced him to Cal Johnson, the stunt coordinator for the new Disney-Touchstone feature film "The Last Song" based on Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel. Barnett auditioned, completed a screen test and was cast in his first feature film in the role of Teddy.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
