Travel: The Science of Pixar Exhibit at the Museum of Science

For more information on this attraction, click here

Currently at the Boston Museum of Science, there’s an exhibit titled “The Science of Pixar” that educates the public on how Pixar films are made.  First the visitors watch a 5 minute video showing how films begins as ideas on storyboards, then go into the production phases of Modeling, Rigging, Surfaces, Sets & Cameras, Lighting, Animation, Simulation and Rendering.  The big treat is the exhibit itself, with life size models and hands-on activities where the guests can acts as animator, lighting designer or modeler.

Geared toward both adults and children, this exhibit demonstrates that learning can be fun and that computers aren’t just for geeks.  If you like the Pixar films, this is the exhibit for you!
