GENERAL INFORMATION > Teachers

Take a magical field trip to The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion where learning is not only fun, but awe-inspiring and eye-opening.

This year’s Children’s Festival features award-winning children’s performers on the Main Stage and in two educational zones: the FMC Technologies STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Zone in the House of Blues Hospitality Tent and the CB&I SEAD (Science, Engineering, Arts and Design) Zone in the South Plaza. Each of the educational zones includes presentations and guided exhibits with plenty of interactive elements for students.

STEAM education has become a priority for schools not only around the country, but in local school districts as well. Research shows the arts support the development of crucial skills in creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication.

The Pavilion is committed to providing opportunities for early childhood STEAM learning through the arts. Partnering with ExxonMobil, FMC Technologies, and CB&I, The Pavilion is able to bring new and exciting elements to the festival this year.

We ask that students refrain from eating DURING any of the performances.

Lunch is not provided by The Pavilion. Concession stands will be closed. No food or beverages will be sold at The Pavilion during school days.

Schools wishing to eat lunch off-site must depart in their school buses. Buses can not be left at The Pavilion if you go off property.
