Wild Kratts®: Ocean Adventure!
Wild Kratts®: Ocean Adventure!, an interactive exhibit based on the popular PBS Kids series, Wild Kratts, will open at Midland County Centennial Library on May 31. Created by Minnesota Children’s Museum in collaboration with Kratt Brothers Company, this exhibit invites participants to explore four animal habitats and the creatures within them.
With a focus on cultivating STEM skills in children ages 3 to 9, this adventurous exhibit engages the visitor in the exploration of global animal habitats, the discovery of incredible creature powers, and invites the visitor on a mission to foil the villains’ nefarious plans. Visitors will explore animal habitats that include the seashore, the shallow seas, and the deep sea. Attendees have the opportunity to learn about – and try out – various Creature Powers® such as crawling through an anemone and hunting for lunch like a lobster would, creating a personal dolphin name, working at a shark cleaning station, and hunting like a dragonfish!
Midland County Public Libraries is excited to host this traveling exhibit during its summer reading program, themed “Oceans of Possibilities.” Library visitors are encouraged to sign up for the program and take part in various activities to earn points and win prizes. Wild Kratts®: Ocean Adventure! is sponsored locally by the FMH Foundation, Helen Greathouse Charitable Trust, Rea Charitable Trust, the Midland County Public Library Foundation (MCPLF), and the MCPLF Carnegie Circle. This exhibit is free and open to the public during MCPL’s operating hours through September 2.
