ATLANTA — For more than a decade, the PBS Kids television series “Wild Kratts” has used mystery, adventure and comedy to educate young people about scientific issues related to zoology and ecology. The long-running animated show stars brothers Chris Kratt and Martin Kratt, who travel to animal habitats around the world to learn about animals through “creature rescues.”
This summer, the Children’s Museum of Atlanta will bring the plot of “Wild Kratts” to town with “Wild Kratts: Creature Power!” — an interactive exhibit based on the popular series. The exhibition continues until September 5.
Created by the Minnesota Children’s Museum in collaboration with the Kratt brothers, the exhibit explores a quartet of animal habitats and their inhabitants. “Creature Power!” focuses on developing STEM skills in children ages 3-9 by inviting guests to explore animal habitats around the world, discover the powers of creatures, and foil the evil plans of the exhibit’s villains.
Using Kratts technology and the powers of science and teamwork, and using an inquiry-based approach, visitors to “Creature Power!” conduct investigations and observations and apply what they learn to complete missions and complete challenges, including thwarting the evil plans of Zach, Donita, Dabio, Gourmand and Paisley.
The four animal habitats featured in the exhibit include tropical rainforest, Antarctica, the Australian Outback, and North America. Creature powers available to guests include sneaking through the forest using the stealth of a jaguar, swinging through trees like a spider monkey, and testing their jumping ability against kangaroos.
The Children’s Museum of Atlanta, located on Centennial Park Drive in downtown Atlanta, operates in two three-hour sessions from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and is closed on Wednesdays.
Online ticketing is only available at this time and telephone booking is available with sufficient notice and will be booked through online registration. For more information on tickets, visit www.childrensmuseumatlanta.org.
