The Science Behind Pixar

Take a peek into the Pixar process, and explore the science and technology behind some of your most beloved animated films and their characters with The Science Behind Pixar, presented locally by White Spot restaurants. This interactive exhibition showcases the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts used by the artists and computer scientists who help bring Pixar’s award-winning films to the big screen. 

With more than 40 interactive elements, the exhibition’s eight sections each focus on a step in the filmmaking process to give you an insider’s look at 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 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!
