Disney: Imagineering in a box - free online teaching package
To develop Imagineering in a Box, Disney partnered with Khan Academy, which has been offering online educational resources for students since 2008. The free Imagineering course features 32 videos that showcase real Imagineers from around the world sharing their skills and passions.
Disney is dedicated to fostering a love of learning in today’s kids and ‘Imagineering in a Box’ has something for everyone. Whether your tween or teen is interested in story development, conceptual design, or STEM subjects like math and engineering, they will be excited by these modules.
The Imagineering in a Box videos cover everything from an overview of engineering software to interactive, hands-on projects that can be done without leaving the house. The program was specifically developed to help kids relate the Disney stories they already love to the skills they’re introduced to in each module.
One of the best parts of this Imagineering for kids course is that older children and parents can tackle the classes together. At the end of the program, you’ll have a new appreciation for Disney theme park design, character development, and attraction engineering.
