San Antonio Museum Brings Hands-on EiE PD to Local Teachers

The DoSeum in San Antonio emphasizes hands-on learning.
Last summer the San Antonio Children's Museum, a beloved local institution, moved into a new space—described by the San Antonio Current as a "singular looking complex with Mad Max vibes." It also took a new name, The DoSeum (pronounced "Do - See - um"), to reflect a new emphasis on getting visitors to engage and do, not just look around. It opened new exhibits like "Innovation Station," focused on the engineering design process. And it set a new goal: To serve as a bridge connecting formal and informal STEM education efforts in the city. We're excited and honored to share that The DoSeum will use the Engineering is Elementary curriculum to aid in their efforts.
