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.

 

 

Find a Way, Not an Excuse: Women in STEM

Find a Way, Not an Excuse: Women in STEM

Now on display
Mayborn Exhibit Hallway

Find a Way, Not an Excuse: Women in STEM presents the lives of 19 women and their contributions to the science, technology, engineering, and math fields.

Over the past 150 years across the state, country, and world, including five from Baylor University. From the clothes we wear to the phones we use, and from the food we eat to the health of our bodies, our quality of life has been improved by female pioneers in STEM. Women have contributed in STEM fields for generations, often without credit.

Created in part by Baylor University Museum Studies graduate students, the exhibit focuses on pioneering innovations in STEM with the hope of inspiring a fierce desire to learn continuously and encourage curiosity to lead to discovery.

 

 

Off the Range: The Art and Architecture of the Trail

Off the Range: The Art and Architecture of the Trail


July 20, 2017 – February 4, 2018

Off the Range: The Art and Architecture of the Trail provides a glimpse into the Wild West of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries through Frederic Remington’s bronze sculptures.

The exhibit offers a nostalgic look at a rapidly disappearing western front, which underwent dramatic transformation in the face of transcontinental transportation, Native American confinement to reservation land, immigration, and industrialization.

This exhibit was made possible by a generous loan from the Texas Baptist Historical Collection in Waco, Texas.
