Pacific Science Center’s Curiosity at Home
Seattle’s Pacific Science Center is offering a new program, Curiosity at Home, which features live streaming science shows and hands-on STEM activities and tutorials for kids of all ages to do at home. The programs are intended to inspire young minds and create excitement about all areas of science.

Stay Home with SAM | At-home Art Programs from the Seattle Art Museum
While it is temporarily closed to the public, the Seattle Art Museum is offering weekly programs to inspire families to take part in at-home art activities. The museum’s blog features a new art object each week with information about its history, origination and the artist who created it. The weekly object is then connected to a suggested at-home activity for the entire family to take part in with tips on technique.
