St. Louis, Missouri, USA – Big Think, Inc. recently unveiled its latest project with the successful reimagination of the Delta Dental Health Theater in St. Louis, Missouri. “Big Think transformed our educational theater into an interactive children’s museum,” said Shannon Woodcock, Executive Director of the theater.
The Delta Dental Health Theater was built 30 years ago to educate children on the importance of proper dental care. The experience centered around a 30 minute show that encouraged children to brush and floss regularly as well as limit sweets and other decaying foods.
“We started by helping DDHT define who they were and who they wanted to be,” explained Judy Leise, president of Big Think. “We then began work on redesigning the existing spaces and creating new experiences to engage visitors in the concepts of total wellness and healthy living.”
The theater includes 8 new interactive exhibits designed by Big Think:
Big Think also redesigned the facility’s offices creating working space for administrative offices and storage. The theater’s popular giant teeth, which are considered a St. Louis legend by many, were preserved. “St. Louis has one of the highest rates of childhood diabetes, obesity and tooth decay,” said Shannon Woodcock. The more we can educate our children and families, the better off our community will be.”
Big Think continues to work with DDHT as they plan their next phase of expansion.
