The new Perot Museum of Nature and Science’s¬†Sports Run Exhibit¬†teaches kids and adults alike the science of running, and allows audiences to race local sports figures and iconic animals both prehistoric and currently living. Anchoring the exhibit is a 55-foot long interactive screen that displays the content, giving the audience the look and feel of a real race against a life-size opponent. The exhibit challenges children and adults to run the length of the exhibit, showing their times compared to their opponent, most often of which is the 3D life-size Tyrannosaurus Rex. As the most physically interactive exhibit in the museum, it teaches audiences the importance of a healthy life-style, using both animals and athletes to communicate this message in a fun, non-obtrusive way.
