What scientific principle is at work in every theme park ride the Imagineers create? It's Energy. The Imagineers reveal the role energy plays in popular theme park attractions such as Epcot's Test Track and the Mad Tea Party. Students will learn that energy is the ability to do work and that energy is constantly being transferred from one thing to another. They will also identify the difference between potential and kinetic energy and be able to establish examples and benefits of renewable energy.

Who knew that Disney used solar panels before they became popular?  This program was engaging and presented in a fun manner by the host and imagineers.  This would be a good addition to any library devoted to the preparation of Common Core assessments.  The rides sited can be easily understood by any pleasure park attendee.

Real Imagineers using rollercoasters, water slides and thrill rides to explain concepts like potential and kinetic energy or the acceleration of a falling object. Not only do these Imagineering DVD's make the concepts perfectly clear, they actually cause you to start noticing science at work in the world all around you. A powerful teaching tool that's also lots of fun for adults, it makes science exciting and relevant. The host is young and appealing, a great role model for kids. The series is ideal for grades 5-9 but would serve a much wider group.
