The Questioneers: Read. Question. Think. PLAY!

Coming October 2021!

 

The Questioneers book series, written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts, celebrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math, perseverance, and passion. Like the characters, Iggy Peck, Rosie Revere, Ada Twist, and Sofia Valdez, every budding architect, engineer, scientist, mathematician, and leader, will find inspiration to solve everyday mysteries and to think more critically about their world. Most importantly, they will learn that despite inevitable challenges, they should always continue to “Read. Question. Think.” — and never give up on their dreams.

DuPage Children’s Museum is bringing these beloved characters and their unique learning experiences to life in a new traveling exhibition — The Questioneers: Read. Question. Think. PLAY!

I have visited DuPage Children’s Museum with my family for almost 30 years. I am thrilled knowing that the Questioneers will come to life in this exhibit and inspire kids, young and young at heart, to share their curiosity and passion with others!

Step Into the World of The Questioneers

Be A Questioneer

Questions are posed, challenges identified, and problem-solving begins! Miss Lila Greer’s classroom is the gathering place and launching point for collaboration, curiosity, and creativity.

Like Ada Twist

Be A Scientist

Sort fiction from fact, investigate cause and effect, and why a clock goes “tick tock” at hands-on investigation stations. Ask why? how? what? when? and then why? again and again from Ada’s special thinking chair.

Like Rosie Revere

Be An Engineer

Try and try again! Engineer rockets, test your flying (or falling) contraptions, and pilot a life-size Heli-o-cheese-copter! “Brilliant flops” lead to continued experimentation, inspiring creativity and perseverance.

Like Iggy Peck

Be An Architect

Build whimsical bridges, design buildings, and figure out how to construct a gigantic version of that famous pancake arch. Art, math, and science come together as young architects discover the balance between form and function.

Like Sofia Valdez

Be A Leader

Explore how one person’s bravery can change the world, and declare to others how you intend to make a difference in your community. Advocate, imagine, and plan together to transform Mount Trashmore into Citizen’s Park.
