Cast Away: Poems for Our Time

The DoSeum is a place where interactive fun and hands-on learning come together—a place where minds are always at play.  During your visit, our exhibits, programs, and classes will encourage young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy, but curiosity and exploration don't have to end when you leave!

Explore our DIY Activities, Storytimes, and other family resources that were created for you to DO at home and stay connected with your family while keeping minds at play in between your visits!


Cast Away: Poems for Our Time

Waste, junk, trash! Join Naomi Shihab Nye as she reads from her book Cast Away: Poems for Our Time and prompts us to think about what we consider to be trash, what happens to trash, and what our trash says about us!

This collection of poems is a reminder that we can have more control and intention over what we use and what we cast away, and that these actions have an effect on our planet.
