In 1900, L. Frank Baum published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and the rest is history. The beloved tale of courage and adventure has seen many adaptations in music, film, and popular culture over the last century. The Mayborn Museum has teamed up with Baylor University Libraries to highlight a few of these great works of imagination in conjunction with The Wizard of Oz Educational Exhibit.

Developed by Scitech in Perth, Australia and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, SPEED: Science in Motion, replicates the high-octane action of the Formula 1 racetrack, complete with pit lane, workshop and physical testing environments.

This immersive experience is designed to unravel the cutting edge science and technology behind professional motor sports. Visitors can challenge themselves through hands-on exhibits and displays, to see if they have the skills, fitness and reactions to race at over 125 miles per hour.
