Learning About Endangered Species with Educational Inflatables

Elephant Thoughts is a Canadian charity that provides educational programs and solutions to schools and museums around the world. Their traveling educational program, Zoo Guts, aims to teach children about endangered species in Canada. To do this in an exciting and creative way Elephant Thoughts worked with IDG to create educational inflatables of 5 animals: a polar bear, salmon, duck, snail, and turtle.

Endangered Species Educational Inflatables for Elephant Thoughts Zoo Guts program

These larger-than-life inflatable animals were manufactured as tunnels and equipped with removable inflatable organs such as lungs, kidneys, brain, liver, heart, and intestines.  Participants could enter the endangered animal’s inner cavity and assemble its organs while learning about the inner workings of each animal.

IDG’s innovative team has worked with museums around the nation to create custom educational inflatables of various animals, including a 48-foot-long whale inflatable. Like the educational inflatable exhibit created for the Elephant Thoughts exhibit, this whale has an opening, allowing museum guests to enter inside the huge mammal. Once inside, guests could view the inner cavity of the whale and learn about its organs and skeleton structure.

Educational Inflatables in the Medical Field

Educational inflatables are also commonly used within the medical field. Larger-than-life inflatable human organs bring awareness and attention to the human body and its possible diseases.   

 Colorectal cancer and breast cancer are two of the most diagnosed cancers in the country. Giant inflatables are a great way to bring awareness and educate people on these diseases. Having a giant inflatable visual aid helps people grasp the importance of screening and the dangers of the various types of cancer.

Custom inflatables also serve as a great way to educate people about the human skeleton system and organs.

For example, IDG created an inflatable knee that was displayed at a health care tradeshow and used to educate people on the most complex joint in the body.  Like many of our other educational inflatables, people could walk inside the knee, which was labeled with the various parts of the joint.
