    Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out! This summer, more hours means more fun at The DoSeum!

    This summer, the sun is up late and we’re open later. Starting June 1st, The DoSeum launches our extended summer schedule (see schedule below), and will celebrate summer in style every Wednesday from 6-8pm with Summer Nights at The DoSeum, so you can make the most of the long summer days. That means more time solving in Spy Academy, more time conquering the Big Climb, and more time making waves in Water Works!

    Every Wednesday evening, during Summer Nights at The DoSeum, we’re beating the heat with cool vibes—playing sweet summer tunes, suiting up staff in their best summer style, and hosting special celebrations with community partners. We’ll also have summer fun pop-up activities throughout the museum, late night hours with Bakery Lorraine, and weekly raffles with The DoSeum Store. 

    This summer, make the most of fun in the sun at The DoSeum! 

    Summer Hours: 
    M, T, Th: 9am-6pm
    Wednesday Hours: 9am-6pm with Summer Nights going from 6-8pm!

    The Okeanos Explorer Educational Materials Collection: Professional Development for Educators of Grades 6-12 

    Saturday, June 23, 2018   |  8am - 4pm 

    In Partnership with Texas State Aquarium and Hosted by The DoSeum.

     All life on Earth relies on the ocean— yet, the ocean is 95 percent unexplored, unknown and unseen by human eyes… 

    An essential component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER) mission is to enhance ocean science literacy and enhance understanding why it is important to explore our little-known ocean world. To help fulfill this mission, the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection was developed to encourage educators and their students to become engaged with expeditions and discoveries made by the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer—America’s first Federal ship dedicated to ocean exploration. 

    Educators are invited join NOAA OER staff to learn more about the importance of ocean exploration and the current technologies used to explore the deep ocean. This 7-hour Professional Development will introduce standards-based, hands-on activities and other online resources that guide classroom teaching and learning. Ocean health, unique underwater habitats, underwater mapping and remotely-operated vehicles are just a few of the topics to be addressed. 

    Registration is required and space is limited. Educators will receive the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer Education Materials Collection Volume 1: Why Do We Explore? and Volume 2: How Do We Explore?, additional resources, a NOAA Ocean Exploration Certificate of Participation, continental breakfast, lunch, free parking and a $75 stipend will be provided. 

    Lessons are designed for grades 6-12 but many activities can be scaled to suit educator needs. 

    If you have previously participated in a Why Do We Explore? or How Do We Explore? Professional Development, this offering will be redundant. 

    To register or get more information, contact Vanessa Westbrook at or at (210) 572-0638.
