Editorial Reviews

What is the force that puts the thrill in thrill rides? Gravity, of course! One of the biggest challenges for Imagineers in designing theme park attractions, like Disney's Rockin' Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, is figuring out the best way to work with--and sometimes against--gravity's constant 1G force. Students learn to define gravity and explain the relationship between gravity, mass, and distance. Best of all, they will be able to apply an understanding of forces to explain the feeling of weightlessness on a roller coaster ride. Cool! Each Imagineering DVD includes a bonus try-it-yourself experiement, an interactive activity 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 all-new 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!

I purchased this DVD for my nephew (age 10) knowing how much he loves Disneyland and seeing how intrigued he has become with science. He LOVES it! The host, Asa, is very kid friendly and does a nice job of explaining scientific principles that might seem a little complicated at first. My nephew is now making his friends watch the DVD and is bugging me to purchase additional DVDs for his school. If you're looking for a fresh, innovative way to teach science - this DVD is for you!

This entire series has been such a gem of a find for our homeschooling classroom. The kids watch them regularly and find them fun to watch. While sometimes sounding more like a commercial for Disney, they are actually very informative and engaging. Really happy with them.

Disney is one of the world's most trusted names when it comes to children's entertainment. What is less well known is the Disney commitment to high quality, kid friendly educational materials. "The Science of Disney Imagineering" is an impressive series of instructional DVDs specifically created for young viewers in grades 5 through 8 with a 30 minute running time. The three DVD productions focus upon a single science concept. "The Science of Disney Imagineering: Gravity" investigates the science and nature of the force behind such thrill rides as roller coasters and other major Disney theme park attractions. "The Science of Disney Imagineering: Levers & Pulleys" focuses on the mechanics of how Disney theme park elements such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and other remarkable machines work. "The Science of Disney Imagineering: Trajectory" illustrates the role that forces and motion play in creating theme park rides such as the California Adventure's California Scramin' and Toy Story Midway Mania. Each of these superbly produced, informed and informative DVDs are enhanced with 'try it yourself' experiments that children can do to reinforce learning the key principles and concepts presented. All three of the "The Science of Disney Imagineering" titles are enthusiastically recommended for school and community library DVD collections, as well as an ideal supplement for home schooling science studies curricula.

I gave a copy of this DVD to my kids science teacher. She thought it was great and used it in her class. My son said everyone liked it and she made a whole lesson out of it. There's a whole series of these shows and they're all good. Great gift for a teacher!

I received this video yesterday and watched it with my 8 year old son. He laughed the whole way through it but learned so much! He took the quiz at the end and got 14 of 15 correct! I was very entertained as well and learned alot myself. This would be great for a classroom as well as home use. I will be buying more in this series! Everything that you would expect from Disney and more!
