The following list will be helpful to you as you are packing for Innovate this summer.
Bed linens: Participants will be staying on campus in a residence hall. Please bring a pillow, sleeping bag, and/or twin sheets (extra-long) and a blanket.
Toiletries: Students will be sharing suite style restrooms during Innovate. Make sure to pack shampoo/conditioner, soap, deodorant, toothbrush, etc.)
Clothing for 5-6 Days: Dress for Innovate is casual because Texas temperatures will be HOT and humid during the month of June. The average high temperature in June is in the mid-90s (plus humidity). We recommend modest t-shirts and shorts. You will be inside and outside participating in activities.
