As the new school year quickly approaches, and many teachers, students and parents move to virtual learning environments, we’re excited to share that the popular ‘Imagineering in a Box’ program is expanding its accessibility and is now available with subtitles in additional languages – Spanish, Portuguese and French, with Chinese coming later this year.
If you’ve ever wondered how theme parks come to life, Disney Imagineers from hundreds of career disciplines around the world share how they use a wide range of skills – from story development and conceptual design, to math, physics and engineering – that all come together to create immersive experiences. ‘Imagineering in a Box’ aims to ignite curiosity, inspire creativity and encourage innovation in the minds of students, teachers and parents alike.
The free one-of-a-kind virtual learning experience, created in partnership with Khan Academy and Pixar, offers 32 videos for three interactive lessons and also includes an educator’s guide. Each activity is designed to be scalable, allowing for individuals to learn on their own or in an online classroom setting.
Learners of all ages can join lessons in theme park design and engineering, experience a behind-the-scenes sneak peek of Imagineering’s development process, and even the opportunity to design their very own theme park experience!
