1. Designing a Disney Story| Disney Youth Education Series Ages 6 to 19: 

Special Requirement: minimum of 10 youth. 

Program Overview

Learn about the complex components that work together to bring favorite Disney characters and stories to the big screen. In this 3-hour program, students will study Disney's role in the history and processes used to create early animated features, as well as the innovative animation techniques used to bring the visions of modern storytellers to life. Members ages 6-19 will explore their own storytelling skills by planning and designing a storyboard and creating a kineograph.

Special Requirement: minimum of 75 youth.  If we do not met the minimum requirement of youth.  We will participate in Properties of Motion Physics Lab. 

Program Overview

In this field study, students participate in an interactive, assembling experience that inspires them to achieve their dreams in the sciences and beyond.

Led by energetic and entertaining facilitators, students learn the mechanical physics concepts that underlie roller coaster design. They draw basic roller coaster tracks of their own, which they periodically embellish during the class as new concepts are introduced. While exploring the history of Disney roller coasters—from the Matterhorn, Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad through the 21st century Incredicoaster—they examine the mechanisms and physics concepts that Imagineers used to pioneer work with linear induction motors, illustrating the importance of electromagnetism, inertia and g-forces in coaster design.

3. Properties of Motion Physics Lab | Disney Youth Education Series Ages 11 to 19:

Special Requirement: minimum of 10 youth. 

Program Overview

During this 3-hour interactive learning experience, students in grades 6-12 will learn the role of mechanical physics at Disney California Adventure Park.
