How Do Fireworks Work?

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.



How Do Fireworks Work?


If you look up to the night sky on New Year's Eve and The Fourth of July you are sure to catch a brilliant show of light and color from fireworks!  Our friend Mason wants to know: How do fireworks work?  Join Alexis as she explores that even though fireworks come in many different sizes and colors they all work similarly in this Ask A DOer. 

This year our celebrations may look a little different, but the important thing is to stay safe and avoid large gatherings.  Be creative and have fun!  Happy Independence Day friends! 


Is there a question your kids want as a DOer? Send your kids' questions to for a chance to be featured in our Ask A DOer Series!   Be sure to include their name and age, video submissions are encouraged.
