Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) September 26, 2015 -- For the first time in three decades of battling evil and exemplifying teamwork, the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will appear in a museum exhibit for children and families to enjoy. 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 26, 2015 at the world’s largest children’s museum.
At The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, families 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 families to their New York City sewer lair to train together and learn about the Turtles’ comedic, skillful strategies.
“The whole is often greater than the sum of its parts and we are hoping children and adults will be able to discover this in their own families as they work together. Along the way, our visitors will discover how each member of the team has something unique to contribute and they can accomplish a lot more together than they can alone,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
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 balance on skateboards.
• Create a sewer pipe together and see where it goes.
The Turtles took the comic book world by storm in 1984—and since then Donnie, Raph, Leo and Mikey have brought Turtle Power to cartoons, movies, video games, and toys!
Children and families across the nation will have the opportunity to explore Nickelodeon™ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer as it travels to children’s museums and science centers coast to coast following its Indianapolis debut.
Nickelodeon™ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™: Secrets of the Sewer is presented by Chick-fil-a and supported by CollegeChoice 529.
