MindSplash is a collaborative group of experienced professionals
who have been creating unique, nationally recognized educational environments
for museums and community spaces for a combined total of over 60 years.
Becky Lindsay, Creative Director, has a deep understanding
of the unique needs of museums and their visitors stemming from over 25
years of on
staff experience at nationally known museums including the Indianapolis
Museum, the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, the DuPage Children's
Museum, the Connecticut Historical Society, and SciTech Museum. She is
as passionate about developing powerful exhibits as she is about designing
them. Becky is adamant that good learning environments should contain
valuable content information waiting to be discovered by visitors. Her
air exhibits, developed while Principal Investigator for NSF's AirWorks
for Kids, are one reason Mike Spock, considered the father of the children’s
museum movement, describes Becky as one of the top developers and
designers in the country.
Robin Frisch, Experience Director, has worked for over
twenty-five years with children and their families in school and community
the DuPage Children's Museum and Naper Settlement. Robin brings to the
team a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding children and how they
and learn, including a strong background in children with special needs.
Currently doing graduate work at the renowned Erikson Early Childhood Institute
in Chicago, IL, Robin is a strong advocate for the need to create environments
that are meaningful, as well as fun and engaging, for young children and
the important people in their lives.
Other talented professionals work
