It's summer and you know what that means — kids are home from school, eager for new entertainment opportunities beyond what's playing on Netflix,
Thankfully, the DoSeum has stepped in just in the nick of time, debuting a new, interactive exhibition specially created by the masterminds at the DoSeum that'll engage kids of all ages in various STEM-related activities that are so fun, nobody will ever realize that they're actually learning important information.
Titled, "Dream Tomorrow Today," the exhibition is set to debut at the DoSeum officially on June 10, remaining at the DoSeum until September 24, before the exhibition goes mobile, traveling across the country in 2024.
So what kind of activities can kids expect at the Dream Tomorrow Today exhibition? Special activations include the chance to harness augmented reality (AR) to build a city, tend a community garden, design a futuristic meal, shop in a futuristic market, and more.
An interesting aspect of the Dream Tomorrow Today exhibition experience is the final part of the participatory process — each kid participating in the exhibition will be assigned a certain specialty within a STEM field based on their results in the activations throughout the exhibition. Each kid will then get transported to a Future World (all digital of course) with a special QR code personalized just for them, based on their experience at the exhibition.
Now we have mentioned kids participating in this exhibition more than once, but the Dream Tomorrow Today exhibition is in fact, open to anyone of any age who dreams of building a better future.
"Dream Tomorrow Today not only inspires individuals to make a positive impact on the future but also serves as a catalyst for change," shared DoSeum CEO Daniel Menelly via release. "We envision this exhibit as a stepping stone toward greater things, through the exhibition's presentation by our peers in other cities nationally in 2024. By igniting the imaginations of visitors and inspiring them to take action, we aim to create a brighter future for all."
