Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets Of The Sewer Exhibit Opens May 25 at Orlando Science Center!

Presented by Nemours Children's Health System

Turtle Power! After three decades of battling evil and exemplifying teamwork, the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ (TMNT) will make waves this summer at Orlando Science Center! 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™.

 

Be transported to the underground home of the crime-fighting heroes to see what really happens in their secret hideaway. TMNT 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 you to their New York City sewer lair to train and learn with them.

 

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, visitors will learn how to work as a team with mental and physical challenges like assembling electrical circuit puzzles, navigating a rope maze, practicing ninja speed and slicing skills while playing a dexterity-based computer game, shredding up and practicing your balance on skateboards, and more!

 

So put on your bandanas and get ready to work together to defeat evil! Whether you come with friends, family, or ninjas in training, you’ll put the strength of your teamwork and cooperation skills to the test. Your crew will be sure to walk away with a bond as strong as this lean, mean, green team!

 

Cowabunga! You’re now ready to defeat evil — together!

Orlando Science Center One Step Closer To Funding For New Exhibit

Orlando Science Center is proud to have received Tourist Development Tax Application Review Committee’s full support for our $10 million request for our new exhibit, LIFE, and astounded to have received the highest score amongst any groups that have applied for funding through Orange County Government’s Tourist Development Tax grant program.

 

LIFE, our new nature and environment exhibit hall is Phase III of our ongoing multi-stage $35 million comprehensive campaign, Unlock Science. This campaign is necessary to help revitalize our educational content and renovate our exhibits to meet the integral STEM learning needs of our growing community. We have raised over $10 million to date enabling us to complete Phases I and II of the campaign, which include renovations to our popular KidsTown and STEM Discovery Center spaces, respectively. Our next phase of exhibit design and renovations will be for LIFE.

 

LIFE will provide the Central Florida community with an essential resource for environmental education, as well as acting as a hub for visitors to make meaningful connections with their local ecosystem. New interactive experiences will be installed in three distinctive habitats to teach visitors about our shared environment and how we negatively and positively impact the ecosystems around us.

 

To help broaden Orange County’s tourism infrastructure and strengthen the local economy the Orange County Government established a competitive Tourist Development Tax grant application program to fund projects that will enhance the capacities of local arts and cultural organizations.

 

Orlando Science Center submitted a capital projects proposal for funding in fall and presented the $10 million project LIFE before the Application Review Community for Orange County Government’s Tourist Development Tax in January. Last Friday, Orlando Science Center’s project for LIFE, along with four other local arts and cultural entities, were evaluated and scored by the Application Review Committee.  The Application Review Committee’s recommendations will now move forward for the consideration of the Tourist Development Council and later to the Board of County Commissioners.

 

Initial development of the exhibit can begin once funding is approved and confirmed.
