Energy and Waves Physics Lab – at the Magic Kingdom® Park, 9:30 am and 11 am ( KS3-5)
Embark on an interactive adventure where you'll explore the physics of light and sound through select attractions at Magic Kingdom® Park and examine the wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Students will discover how energy is transmitted by light and sound waves, and how these waves affect the Disney Guest experience and their day-to-day lives. They'll also discover how light and sound can be manipulated.
Properties of Motion Physics Lab – at the Magic Kingdom® Park, 7:15 am (KS3-5)
Experience physics in practical application as we demonstrate force, motion and gravity on some of the most popular attractions at Magic Kingdom® Park. Students will gain an understanding of inertia, centripetal force and other properties of motion in real world applications of theme park attractions.
The Evolution of Technology - at EPCOT, 7:45am (KS3-5)
Explore the attractions of Future World at Epcot® to develop an understanding of how human needs and wants drive the development and acceleration of technology. Students discover the progressive nature of technology as they explore factors that influence and impact its development and acceptance.
The Science of Disney Imagineering: Gravity - at Hollywood Studios, 8:00 am (KS3)
Discover how Walt Disney Imagineering uses the powers of science to develop our world-famous theme parks and attractions. Students will explore how gravity and Newton's laws of motion are fundamental to creating exhilarating theme park experiences.
Everyday Chemistry – at EPCOT (KS4-5)
Gain a greater understanding of modern chemistry and its practical application through observations and hands-on experiments within Epcot®.
In Everyday Chemistry, the science of chemistry is demystified as participants discover that everything they hear, see, smell, taste and touch involves chemistry and chemicals. They come to understand that chemistry is the science of change and it's the job of chemists to predict and explain how matter interacts to form new substances—substances that we come in contact with every day.
