Project Overview

The Independence Seaport Museum’s plan for their cornerstone exhibit called for innovative digital media to teach visitors about the science and beauty of the Delaware River Watershed. Bluecadet’s exhibition branding and suite of interactives blur the line between education and play, making it fun for children to learn about the water right outside the museum’s walls.
