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 Questions from Kids that were created for you to DO at home and stay connected with your family while keeping minds at play in between your visits!
To learn more about how you can help support your DoSeum, especially during these unprecedented times, please visit our SUPPORT page.
What is a bridge? Why are triangles the strongest shape? Why do so many bridges look alike? Explore these and other questions while working together to build your own bridge out of toothpicks and mini marshmallows! Challenge yourselves to make the tallest, longest, widest, or strongest bridge. Become an engineer and design your bridge before you start building it. Perform multiple tests and improve your design. Just be sure not to eat all of your marshmallows before you’re done!
Ready to share your kids' Marshmallow and Toothpick Bridge? Be sure to tag @TheDoSeum and use #DoSeumAtHome we love seeing all that you create!
