JERSEY CITY, N.J., Sept. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Get ready to explore with Dora and Diego at the Liberty Science Center in its newest exhibit, Dora and Diego—Let's Explore! The exhibit features beloved characters Dora and Diego from Nickelodeon's hit preschool series Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!, along with their friends Boots, Map, Backpack, Isa, Tico, and of course Swiper.

Children enjoying the Dora & Diego - Let's Explore! exhibit at Liberty Science Center.

The interactive exhibit, created by The Children's Museum of Indianapolis in partnership with Nickelodeon, will be available to Liberty Science Center guests from October 3, 2015, through January 24, 2016.

Dora the Explorer is a ground-breaking children's series that follows the adventures of the 7-year-old Latina heroine Dora and her friends in an imaginative, tropical world. Go, Diego, Go! stars Dora's 8-year-old cousin Diego, a bilingual wildlife rescuer who protects animals and their environment. The exhibit gives children and their families the opportunity to go into the worlds of Dora and Diego to engage in problem-solving and active play. Young children play along as they join an adventure and learn how to solve problems, be a good friend, and care for animals and the environment. Spanish vocabulary is incorporated throughout the exhibit to introduce Spanish-speaking skills to preschool children.

Favorite friends and places from episodes of Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Do! are incorporated in the exhibit including:

The Purple Planet Visit the Purple Planet with Dora and Boots! A Purple Planet home invites young visitors to climb inside and slide down on the surface of the Purple Planet.

Rocket Ship Dora's outer-space friends want to go back to the Purple Planet and need help getting there. Aboard the Rocket Ship, preschoolers are invited to put on a spacesuit, pilot the ship, and test their memory with images of colorful planets as they help Dora and Boots take their outer-space friends home.

Constellations On the way to the Purple Planet, Dora and Boots encounter some interesting star groupings. Children and their families are invited to help identify the patterns made out of stars by inserting star shapes to light-up a constellation.

Isa's Flowery Garden Dora's friend Isa the Iguana demonstrates how to take care of flowers, plants, and animals. Preschool visitors can tour Isa's Garden to pick flowers, interact with bird, butterfly, and insect puppets, and pretend-fly with toddler-sized bird and butterfly wings. Even the littlest visitors will enjoy smelling the flowery scents and picking soft-fabric posies.

Tico's Tree and Car Dora is a good friend to Tico the squirrel and young visitors are invited to be a good friend to Tico too. Tico needs help picking nuts from the tree for a family picnic. Children can play along with Swiper to swipe the nuts and watch as they shoot up and over to fill Tico's basket. Tico's car is in need of fuel! Visitors can help Tico fill up his car with nuts so he can begin his journey.

Pirate Ship In the Pirate Ship, preschoolers can join the Pirate Piggies crew and dress like a pirate to pretend-play along sailing the ship and divvying up the treasure. Visitors can raise and lower the Pirate Piggies' flag, look through the telescopes to spot the treasure chest and then divvy up the coins into the Pirate Piggies' banks and help them share the treasure.

Animal Rescue Center Young children can practice caring and helping rainforest animals in Diego's Animal Rescue Center. Preschoolers can be an animal rescuer, like Diego, as they diagnose and address an animal's problem from the 'Scanner' bed, bandage and apply cold packs at the 'First-Aid Station,' and bathe stuffed animals at the 'Care Station.'

Rainforest Maze Preschoolers will explore a rainforest to locate rainforest animals. Active play is encouraged as children swing across the Bobo Brothers' monkey bars, crawl through a fallen tree, climb across Jaguar Mountain, and jump or hop across the River Rocks.

Dora and Diego—Let's Explore! will be open through January 24, 2016, at Liberty Science Center. The exhibit is presented by the WellPoint Foundation and Bank of America. For more information, please visit

Kenan Thompson And Kel Mitchell Stage Epic Reunion On "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon"

It's a great time for Nickelodeon nostalgia!

First we got to revisit "Zoey 101" when creator Dan Schneider posted a brand new clip on YouTube, and last night, we get more from the '90s when Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell finally reunited after 15 years to play tribute to two of their most beloved "All That" characters!

In the midst of promoting his latest Nickelodeon show "Game Shakers" on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", Fallon (much like he did with his "Saved By the Bell" reunion) takes a trip down memory lane to remember his time working at Good Burger for a truly magical seven minutes!

In the sketch, Kel reprises his role of Ed (now promoted to a supervisor role) and Jimmy plays his employee - two of the most bumbling fast food workers ever. Thompson returns as Lester Oaks, the hangry impatient construction worker who frequents Good Burger with no time for Ed's "good shake". Of course, it wouldn't be complete without Ed welcoming everyone into the shop by saying, "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger. Can I take your order?"!

Kenan's reprisal of "Lester Oaks, construction worker", could signals the reunion was a nod to "All That" more than the movie, in which Thompson played a teenager named Dexter Reed.

The "Good Burger" sketch also features another very special guest: Black Thought of the Roots, and he's here for a spicy chicken wrap and to make Ed a special deal. Click below to watch the sketch (and to get "We're all Dudes" stuck in your head), plus, be sure to watch the short behind-the-scenes feature, in which Ed talks about his first day working at Good Burger with Mr. Bailey (Dan Schneider) and Lester recalls the first time he met Ed the Good Burger Guy, plus the guys switch roles:
