Editorial Reviews

Walt Disney Imagineers do more than create wild rides. They also study wild animals to create environments, activities, and educational programs at Disney's Animal Kingdom that are tailored to the species' physical and behavioral adaptations. How do naked mole rats identify family members, and why is the toilet chamber so important? How do dolphins identify each other in murky water? How do meerkats communicate it's safe to come out and forage for food? They all rely on communication adaptations - olfactory, auditory and visual. Students will learn to define and identify key adaptations, and listen in on amazing elephant communications that most humans have never heard. Each Imagineering DVD includes a bonus try-it-yourself experiment, an interactive assessment to reinforce key learnings, Public Performance Rights for classroom/educational use only, and a printable educator's guide.

Walt Disney believed, "if you can dream it, you can do it," and that belief is at the core of Disney Imagineering; the place where imagination meets engineering. Imagineers use science to create and build unique attractions that delight Disney guests around the globe. This award-winning series uses roller coasters, stunt shows, animatronics, and other irresistible examples to break down scientific principles in a way that is accessible for all learners. Just imagine what you could do if the whole world was your toolbox!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Educational Science Series September 7, 2009
Format:Interactive DVD
Many science DVD's include great information about science, but very few of them are created specifically for learning scientific concepts. Imagineering is about the science of the Disney theme parks, which you would expect to be fun - what you probably won't expect is how dynamic and clear the learning is. I've watched several from the series and they are all clever, funny and truly useful in teaching science curriculum. Each show has clear learning objectives that are reinforced and built upon during the course of the program. The host (who is wonderful) and everyone he interviews are all real Imagineers, which also helps get kids excited about careers in science. The more complicated or "theoretical" points are reinforced with animation. Each show also includes Try It Yourself experiments. Great product for learning, and for enjoying at home.

I've watched the entire Science of Disney Imagineering series, and I'm so impressed. Not only is the video and audio quality fantastic (but really, would you expect anything less from Disney?), but I love the entire thing, from its concept all the way to the finished product. Nearly every week, I see some article on education talking about the need for better science and math content for our nation's students. What makes this series so great is that it's a dynamic and relevant way to explain scientific principles, but even better, it shows kids another option of what a career in science can look like. Keep it up Disney! I can't wait for the next set of titles.

"The Science of Disney Imagineering" DVD series continues to blend educational value and fun into a classroom-friendly (or home school friendly) package. Animal Adaptations: Communication explores the manner in which a variety of amazing creatures connect with one another - from how naked mole rats identify family members, to how meerkats let one another know it's safe to forage for food, to how dolphins recognize one another even if their water has low visibility. Included are a bonus "Try It Yourself" experiment, an interactive assessment to help reinforce key learning points, correlation to educational standards, public performance rights (for classroom/educational use only), and a downloadable educator's guide with additional activities and resources. A great, highly recommended way to help get kids excited about science.
