The DoSeum’s Educational Programs

As an institution committed to fostering a lifelong love of learning among children, The DoSeum offers a diverse array of programs for children ages 0-10. These exciting, educational, interactive public programs include monthly “deep-dives”, community-based programs and special events. From large scale collaborative art to exciting and unusual science demos, theatrical games, and super challenging engineering and design workshops, our community partners bring the best of San Antonio’s science, art, and culture to The DoSeum.

Early Childhood Spring Programs

This spring’s Early Childhood programs are based on self-expression, self-esteem, and self-awareness.  Programs run one day a week, for six weeks, beginning the week of January 23rd. Unlike our camp offerings, these programs are not drop off programs. Caregivers should remain within The DoSeum facilities for the duration of the programming. Caregivers are invited to attend and participate as appropriate in each offering to learn and play alongside their kids. Alternately, they may visit our café or The DoSeum store during sessions.

Educator Programs

We believe that when educators come together across disciplines and learning spaces, together they can transform how students experience learning. Our professional development opportunities support and host universities, public, charter, or private school districts, and informal institutions, and are grounded in theory, research, and best practices. The DoSeum is a convener of educators, a laboratory for research, and a resource for educators to take practices and materials back to their institutions.
