The Independence Seaport Museum’s new cornerstone exhibit shares with visitors the science and beauty of the Delaware River Watershed. We partnered with Habitheque to create an experience that blurs the line between education and play—making it fun for kids to learn about the water right outside the museum’s walls.
Project Videos and Images
Our style guide for River Alive includes a hand-painted font, logo, and color palette that establishes a kid-friendly, approachable tone for the exhibit and its marketing materials.
Restoring a Watershed
Using interactive sensors, visitors blow, spin, and drum to clean the digital waters of a 32-foot long projection of the watershed—and meet the friendly creatures that call it home along the way.
Using Data to Understand and Improve a River's Health
A multi-user touchscreen teaches kids about the science behind the river’s health with engaging activities and interactive animations.
Mapping a River's History
Set into a larger map of the watershed, a touchscreen takes visitors on a deep dive into the river’s history.
Personalizing Connection to River Life
Our personality quiz builds connection and commitment to the watershed by matching visitors with their “River Hero” and related local organizations.
A Visual Ecosystem
Our custom font, illustrated animals, and colorful photographs balance scientific content to set a playful yet educational tone for the exhibit.
