What is the force that puts the thrill in thrill rides? Gravity, of course! One of the biggest challenges for Imagineers in designing theme park attractions, like Disney’s Rockin’ Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, is figuring out the best way to work with–and sometimes against–gravity’s constant 1G force. Students learn to define gravity and explain the relationship between gravity, mass, and distance. Best of all, they will be able to apply an understanding of forces to explain the feeling of weightlessness on a roller coaster ride. Cool! Each Imagineering DVD includes a bonus try-it-yourself experiement, an interactive activity to reinforce key learnings, Public Performance Rights for classroom/educational use only and a printable educator’s guide.
Walt Disney believed, “If you can dream it, you can do it,” and that belief is at the core of Disney Imagineering; the place where imagination meets engineering. Imagineers use science to create and build unique attractions that delight Disney guests around the globe. This all-new series uses roller coasters, stunt shows, animatronics, and other irresistible examples to break down scientific principles in a way that is accessible for all learners. Just imagine what you could do if the whole world was your toolbox!
