Any volunteer acting as a guest speaker, entertainer or person who visits for a limited purpose or limited time or who has no direct and unsupervised interaction with minors is not required to take the training.
It is the responsibility of the program operator, director or coordinator to ensure those involved with the camps or programs fitting the above guidelines are notified of the requirement to complete the training and report in a timely manner the completion of the training to the State of Texas in accordance with the rules under the SB1414 legislation.

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.
