The Science Behind Pixar

Perot Museum of Nature and Science

Ever wonder what goes into the making of a Pixar film, particularly how character favorites like Buzz Lightyear, Mike, Sulley and Dory are created and brought to life? Making its Texas debut at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, “The Science Behind Pixar” offers a unique look into the Pixar process. Exploring the almost 10,000-square-foot exhibition, visitors will learn about the science and technology needed to create their most beloved animated films and characters. Presented locally by NexPoint, the exhibition makes its Texas debut Nov. 16, 2022, and runs through Sept. 4, 2023. 

“The Science Behind Pixar” embodies the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) thinking skills needed to create compelling films. Presented in English and digitally in Spanish, guests can engage in dozens of hands-on activities, listen to firsthand accounts from members of the studios’ production teams and come face-to-face with life-size recreations of cherished Pixar characters such as Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Ian Lightfoot, Edna Mode and WALL•E!
