Field Trip Offerings

Pre-K

Bridge It

Students will take on the role of “engineers in training” as they discover, explore, and build bridges. Get ready to work together to design and create solutions to real world scenarios using math and engineering skills—all about bridges!

Pint Sized Spies

Put on your disguise and grab your magnifying glass as your Pint-Sized Spies solve mathematical missions on their journey to becoming DoSeum Master Agents!  Through exploration and observation, young spy recruits will utilize their emerging critical thinking and cognitive reasoning skills to complete challenges in our Spy Training Room and The DoSeum’s Spy Academy Gallery. 

Story Builder

Explore the fundamentals of story-making! In this experience, students will dive into the basic story elements that set the stage for a story worth sharing; collaborating to create characters, setting, character emotions, and events from beginning to end. Ideas are put together for an interactive read aloud where students hear their ideas brought to life by an enthusiastic storyteller. The story-making continues with further exploration in Imagine It! gallery and beyond.

K-2

Color Journey

Dive into watercolor investigations highlighting primary and secondary color blending. Journey into manipulating colors to discover their different properties. Combine the sheer joy of painting and exploring color through different workshop activities. Enjoy watching your students transition from the hands-on activities to sharing their observations, reinforcing what you’ve taught them in the classroom. Travel to our Sensations Studio gallery where colors will never look the same again!

ENERGY EXPLORERS

In Energy Explorers, kids will explore various exhibits at The DoSeum that focus on force, motion, and energy. In the exhibits, kids will complete challenges that engage them in the process of discovering how energy affects different objects, exists in many forms, and is a part of everyday life. Kids will then apply what they have learned about energy in our Energy Lab by investigating how they can make objects move, stop, and change direction. Energy Explorers will truly be exploring energy in action!       

I Spy Solutions

In I Spy Solutions, young mathematicians will enter The DoSeum as novice spies and leave as master agents. With the support of their chaperones and teachers, these recruits will explore different spaces in The DoSeum’s indoor and outdoor galleries to solve problems given a scenario or clue. After navigating the challenges in the Spy Training Room and completing the Spy Obstacle Course to prove their math skills, these novices will become DoSeum Spy Agents.

plot twisters

All children are great storytellers! In Plot Twisters, DoSeum facilitators guide students through the process of story-making using a literacy focused exhibit to spark inspiration. The step-by-step process includes an introduction to key story elements where students decide where they story goes. I addition to collaborative story-making, students will individually draft a storyboard with their own twists; selecting from a new set of characters, settings, and conflicts, and formulating their own solutions to their story’s main conflict. The story-making continues with further exploration in Imagine It! gallery and beyond.

Spot the Bot

Can you spot the bot? In Spot the Bot, students are invited to enter the realm of bots and learn all about the parts, purposes, and complexities of robotics. Students will meet and interact with our friendly local bot, Baxter, who will serve as an ambassador to an understanding of how bots work and how we can use them. Students will then apply what they have learned about bots to sketch their own bot, articulating the parts, purposes, and complexities. As a team, students will also have the opportunity to program a bot fit for their age.

3-5

City Builders

Immerse your students in the world of urban planning during City Builders! Students will be challenged to put on their hard hats and solve real-world geography, economic, and government issues. Classes will be guided through different workshops strengthening and building upon prior knowledge of Social Studies concepts in the unique settings of eXplore! and Innovation Station galleries. Teachers are encouraged to put on their own hard hats and collaborate with our educators to help present problems relevant to their own students. Through critical thinking, decision making, and reflection, students will walk away with a framework for a successful and sustainable city.

ENERGEERS AT WORK

In Energeers at Work, kids will explore various exhibits at The DoSeum that focus on force, motion, and energy. In the exhibits, kids will complete challenges that engage them in the process of discovering how energy affects different objects, exists in many forms, and is a part of everyday life. Kids will then apply what they have learned about energy in our Energy Lab by investigating how they can make objects move, stop, and change direction by creating an at large Rube Goldberg machine as a team!

Operation Calculation 

In Operation Calculation, young mathematicians will enter The DoSeum as novice spies and leave as master agents. With the support of their chaperones and teachers, these recruits will explore different spaces in The DoSeum’s indoor and outdoor galleries to solve problems given a scenario or clue.
