Have you ever wondered about the step-by-step process that goes into making your favorite Pixar movies? Are you curious about the physics of Sully’s hair, or Buzz Lightyear’s “falling with style?” Then California ScienCenter‘s upcoming exhibit “The Science Behind Pixar” might be the perfect thing for you.
The interactive 12,000-square-foot exhibition, which originated at the Museum of Science in Boston and was also formerly housed at The Franklin Insititute in Philadelphia, showcases a wide array of the “science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts” utilized by Pixar artists and storytellers in crafting some of the most beloved blockbuster movies of the past two decades.
From the description at the official ScienCenter website:
With more than 40 interactive exhibit elements, the exhibition’s eight sections each focus on a step in the filmmaking process to give you an unparalleled view of the production pipeline and concepts used at Pixar every day. Participate in fun, engaging hands-on activities, listen to firsthand accounts from members of the studios’ production teams, and even come face-to-face with re-creations of your favorite Pixar film characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Dory, Mike and Sulley, Edna Mode, and WALL•E!
The California Science Center will be the home for the exhibit’s West Coast debut when it premieres on October 15th.
