Now some of us have had our kids home from school for a week (or more) we may be looking for new educational programs to keep our kids excited and on task. Walt Disney Imagineers are inspiring creativity, curiosity and innovation through Imagineering in a Box, a free online program created in partnership with the Khan Academy and Pixar. This one-of-a-kind learning experience gives families a chance to dream, create and build right from home.
Imagineering in a Box is a series of interactive lessons in theme park design and engineering, designed to give a behind-the-scenes peek into Imagineering’s development process. It combines 32 videos of actual Imagineers, real-world case studies, and lots of interactive activities to give you the opportunity to dream and design your very own theme park experience.
In a post on the Disney Parks Blog, Josh Gorin, a creative development executive with Walt Disney Imagineering writes, “Today, we are so excited to share with learners of all ages the unique ways that science, technology, engineering, and math can be combined with creativity and design to create larger-than-life entertainment for millions all around the world. And maybe, we’ll be helping the Imagineers of tomorrow to get their first start.”
Gorin encourages families to use #Disney, #BetterTogether and #ImagineeringinaBox on Instagram and tag @WaltDisneyImagineering to let them know how you are using the program, and for a chance to be featured.
