Air enters the mannequin's chest as Emma Day, 7, tries to revive the doll. "He's not breathing!" she shouts. Emma and her friends participated in "Doctor Day," YouZeum's School's Out program, on Monday while school was closed in observance of President's Day. Elementary and middle schools will be also closed Friday for a teacher workday, so the YouZeum will host another event called "Science is Everywhere."

With schools closing in observance of President's Day, some children participated in "Doctor Day," YouZeum's School's Out program on Monday. The event offers education and entertainment for children on days when school is out of session.

The all-day event was offered for children because of schools closing in observance of President's Day. "These days are a mixer of educational stuff with a lot of fun," YouZeum educator Maria Fischer said.

Will the Youzeum be adding any new exhibits in the near future? The other kid's venue in town also has a hospital area/food area in addition to other exhibits. I'm concerned that providing childcare may not be enough to encourage attendance. To keep kids interested and coming back the Youzeum needs to diversify it's displays.
