NEW YORK, April 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nickelodeon‘s interactive learning platform Noggin announced today the launch of Bubble Guppies: Dive into The Met, a game that aims to spark creativity by taking kids on a virtual field trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art where they can explore art from different cultures and countries. The game builds creativity and critical thinking skills, and fosters appreciation for different cultures and the arts in young children (ages 2-7). The new offering aligns with Noggin’s standards-based learning framework and serves as the first release under its expanded early learning programs: Big Hearts, Mighty Minds, Healthy Heroes and Brave Explorers.

Bubble Guppies: Dive into The Met will help young learners identify and understand details and characteristics of each work of art with information provided in consultation with educators and curators from The Met. The game will also foster concepts and skills such as: art appreciation through an examination of the artwork’s story; artistic expression, as children create their own artwork; and decision making, with tools to curate and customize art they create themselves. Bubble Guppies: Dive into The Met is available on Noggin and www.metmuseum.org

Art Appreciation for Early Learners

In Bubble Guppies: Dive into The Met, the lead character, Mr. Grouper, takes the Bubble Guppies to The Metropolitan Museum of Art for a field trip to study works of art originating from Japan, Ancient Egypt, France, India, and the Netherlands. Young learners, alongside parents and teachers, can find out more about the diverse styles and time periods of the artwork. They can also explore their own artistic interests with stickers and paint tools to create their own image inspired by the artworks from The Met collection.

Five featured works of art include:

  • Children Playing in the Snow Under Plum Trees in Bloom by Yōshū (Hashimoto) Chikanobu
  • The King Travels to His Sons’ Weddings by Bahu Masters
  • A Goldsmith in his Shop by Petrus Christus
  • Stela of Aafenmut, Egyptian, ca. 924–889 B.C.
  • Madame Georges Charpentier and Her Children, Georgette-Berthe and Paul-Émile-Charles by August Renoir
Additional Resources for Educators and Parents 

In addition to the content partnership with The Met, Noggin released today new math and literacy content as well as previews of upcoming episodes of its cooking show, School of Yum. With over 400 pieces of content currently found across Noggin’s four learning programs, and new content rolling out every month, Noggin helps young learners to build readiness skills in math, literacy, the arts and sciences, as well as to establish healthy habits and foster social and emotional skills like self-awareness, empathy and how to develop positive relationships.
