The Science Behind Pixar

Pixar movies are beloved by millions, and for good reason; these films capture the wonder and whimsy of our world — and others — in a way that entirely unique. Children and adults, alike, always have a great time watching these movies. Now, the Perot Museum in Dallas has a new exhibition that offers a look into the Pixar process. It highlights the science, technology engineering, and math skills that go into creating the studio’s films. There are hands-on activities as well as thorough explanations and demonstrations of how these movies were made. There are even life-size recreations of some of Pixar’s most beloved characters.
