This summer the Museum of Science will premier an exciting new exhibit called “The Science Behind Pixar.” On May 13 five CCSC middle schoolers were invited to preview parts of it and to participate in market research that will provide the exhibit designers from MOS and Pixar Animation Studios valuable feedback on the user experience. The interactive exhibit, which opens to the public on June 28, will give visitors of all ages hands-on experience with some of the same cutting-edge technology that Pixar uses to create its award-winning animated films. The five students who previewed the show are high merit-winners in the 6th and 7th grade: Wedderson Xavier, Satoya Isophe, Marjorie Ghiraldelli, Leonardo Perez-Loynd, and Lovenskee Dorismond. They were accompanied by Ms. Duckworth and Ms. Ferrara.
An MOS press release explains, “The exhibition is broken into eight distinct sections, each focusing on a step of the filmmaking process – Modeling, Rigging, Surfaces, Sets & Cameras, Animation, Simulation, Lighting, and Rendering – providing visitors with a unique view of the production pipeline and concepts used at Pixar every day.” Read more about the exhibit.
We hope that other CCSC students will have the opportunity to visit the exhibit and the Museum of Science this summer. Tickets are on sale now — you have to select a date and time for your visit, so plan ahead because the “Science Behind Pixar” show is sure to be a very popular summer attraction.
