    Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear
    On Display through September 2, 2013

    Goose Bumps! The Science of FearWhy do our hearts race, our knees shake, and our bodies sweat when we are scared? Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear explores this universal emotion that can save our lives.


    Through fun, interactive challenges, guests can experience fear in a safe environment and discover the science behind their physical and emotional responses. Thrill seekers and scaredy-cats alike will have fun learning about fear.


    This exhibit includes immersive environments and full-body, interactive experiences that allow guests to test their own fears and rate their physiological responses. Leading scientists and their current research on the neurobiology, physiology, and psychology of fear are also featured throughout the exhibit.

    Baylor Line Camp visits Mayborn
    It Takes a Village

    Baylor Line Camp Last month the Mayborn Museum Complex received some horticultural assistance from future Baylor Bears who were attending Line Camp. While helping to maintain the beautiful landscaping, they also got a chance to experience the Governor Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village.

    Baylor Line Camp is an extended orientation program that helps better equip new students in their transition to Baylor while emphasizing their personal strengths.
