Pixar Exhibit

The Franklin Institute 
presents
The Science of Pixar 


During a workshop I attended last weekend at Moore College of Art I was able to tour the Pixar exhibit at The Franklin Institute. As I was walking around I kept thinking My Students Would Love This!

 The exhibition showcases the science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) behind some of your favorite Pixar films.

The exhibit runs through September 5, 2016.

 


I had a great time visiting the interactive exhibit! You'll be creating and building along with your favorite Pixar characters.




Mrs. Barron and I met all the cool characters.
