The new exhibit in the Exploradome of the St. Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue), Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss, is a winner. Kids will get off on the generous number of buttons, switches and joysticks to play with in the re-created deep-sea-submersible cockpits. They'll also enjoy the Lego pit, and the trompe l'oeil photo op involving the hatch of a minisubmarine in front of a mural of the open sea. Older humanoids will dig the spooky mood music and lighting, giant models of sea vessels, retired ocean-exploration ships and video footage of huge, bizarre, neon-glowing, jellylike animals found in the dark depths. Speaking of video footage, the coolest part of the whole exhibit may be the HDTV widescreen showing otherworldly scenes of chalk-white crabs, human-flesh-colored fish and bright-orange tubeworms frolicking next to Davy Jones' locker. Stop by daily through May 11; admission is $2-$3. Call 314-289-4400 for more info.
