Disney – Imagineering in a Box
Disney made this great course FREE last year (through Khan Academy) and this extended time off school is the PERFECT time to break it out for some hands-on creativity at home.
Description: Have you 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 allows you to explore different aspects of theme park design, from characters to ride development, as you design a theme park of your very own.
Imagineering in a Box is designed to pull back the curtain to show you how artists, designers and engineers work together to create theme parks.
