Splash and Bubbles: Dive in, Lend a Fin! is based on the popular PBS KIDS TV show Splash and Bubbles, a hit animated series that encourages children to explore ocean science and marine biology through character-driven comedy.
The series is co-produced by The Jim Henson Company and Herschend Entertainment Studios and created by The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum. Presented locally by MidWestOne Bank, the exhibition builds on kids’ connections to characters and their habitats, immersing them in a larger-than-life marine environment and introducing them to the incredible world of ocean exploration.
While exploring the early childhood STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) based exhibit, children will be encouraged to build both scientific inquiry and social-emotional skills as they learn how to protect the ocean and its ecosystems. Ocean conservation is a key message within the exhibit, encouraging families they can create “a small ripple to help our big ocean.”
Featuring a variety of hands-on exhibit components, Splash and Bubbles: Dive In, Lend a Fin! invites children to discover a whole new world as they navigate an under-the-sea maze in a kelp forest, explore a sunken ship that has become an artificial reef, interact with puppet characters created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, become a Reeftown Ranger to learn to protect the ocean, and more!
Splash and Bubbles: Dive In, Lend a Fin! is made possible thanks to generous support from Tim and Elizabeth Swank and Graybar Foundation and was developed by The Magic House in collaboration with The Jim Henson Company and Herschend Studios.
