The four funny “heroes in a half-shell” will share life lessons and team-building skills with their crime-fighting tactics in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer™ opening September 24.
Visitors will be transported to the underground home of the crime-fighting heroes to see what really happens in their secret hideaway.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brothers Leonardo (the tactical, courageous leader in blue), Michelangelo (the free-spirited jokester in orange), Raphael (the aggressive tough guy in red), and Donatello (the scientist and technological genius in purple) invite guests to their New York City sewer lair to train together and learn about the Turtles’ comedic, skillful strategies.
“For decades, the antics of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have entertained kids all over the world. But the Turtles teach important life skills, too,” said Paul Hoffman, President and CEO of Liberty Science Center. “Each individual has a unique strength or talent that’s vital to the team’s overall success. They show the value of teamwork in conquering obstacles. In this exhibition, families can practice real problem-solving skills and have a great time together. We’re very excited to have it here at LSC.”
The Turtles are known and respected for their teamwork. As the TMNT’s sensei and adoptive father Splinter often tells them, “Together there is nothing you cannot accomplish.”
Through team-building challenges, collaborative games and mind-teasing puzzles, families, and friends will learn skills to help them successfully work together.
Here are a few examples:
- Build a “bridge” together and think creatively as a team to overcome challenges.
- Assemble two electrical circuit puzzles by taking one apart to build another.
- Plan ahead and use patience to navigate the rope maze.
- Practice Ninja speed and slicing skills while playing a dexterity-based computer game.
- Shred up and practice your balance on skateboards.
- Create a sewer pipe together and see where it goes.
Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer will be at Liberty Science Center from September 24, 2022, through January 16, 2023.
The exhibition is free with admission to LSC. Please visit LSC.org for more details.
