How Does Sound Travel?

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 Does Sound Travel?

Sound is all around us and helps us navigate our lives every day, but Myla wants to know, “How does sound travel?” Join Dr. Richard on this week’s Ask A Doer as he explores just how sound travels—from bird songs to bell rings—and if it’s possible to make sound in space!

Terms You’ve Learned:

Vibration – rapid movement back and forth or up and down.

Sound Wave – a wave formed by a vibrating object

Acoustics – the scientific study of sound 

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 every Friday at Noon!   Be sure to include their name and age, video submissions are encouraged.
