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 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.
Experience the first-ever museum exhibit featuring the four heroic ninjas in training – Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Leap to the rescue and learn teamwork, collaboration, and problem-solving as you work your way through puzzles, mazes, and obstacles.
Explore their sewer-like lair, where good guys win and bad guys lose! Since 1984, these four iconic brothers have rocked it with their talent and teamwork, inspiring generations. Now families can join these pizza-eating, crime-fighting "Heroes in a Half-Shell" to hone their ninja skills and problem-solving intellects while learning the secrets of the sewer.
This exhibit was produced by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Nickelodeon..
