National Engineers Week at Epcot

    97

    Join Raytheon during National Engineers Week (February 17-21) to discover the wonders of science through exciting, hands-on experiments led by real scientists, featuring the host of “The Dr. Erika Show” at the INNOVENTIONS West attraction at Epcot. Twenty-minute shows will take place at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. February 17th through 21st.

    At the interactive Science Thrills Live shows presented by Raytheon, Science from Scientists will demonstrate nucleation-triggered eruption, thermoplastic recycling, conservation of angular momentum, and the strength of air pressure. In other words, they’ll explode soda, melt milk jugs, and get park guests involved in a giant tug of war. It’s all in the name of fun (and science). And everyone will walk away with a giveaway before they head over to The Sum of All ThrillsTM presented by Raytheon to design and experience their own thrill ride.

    Can’t make it to Epcot? Celebrate National Engineers Week locally with MathMovesU’s resources that promise to get you excited about engineering. You can also find math worksheets and online learning games, and a place to design your own The Sum of All ThrillsTM ride.

    The INNOVENTIONS Experience

    Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with Raytheon, Sum of all Thrills ™ lets kids experience math and science in an innovative and exhilarating way by designing — and then riding — their very own thrill ride.

    Sum of all Thrills takes learning to new heights (not to mention loops and barrel rolls) and shows firsthand that math, science, physics and engineering can all add up to something pretty amazing.

    Sum of All Thrills attraction is at INNOVENTIONS at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

    Design a Ride

    Can’t make it to INNOVENTIONS at Epcot? Don’t worry. There is an online version of Sum of All Thrills and it is available through MathMovesU.com.

    The online version allows users to create a roller coaster ride, pilot a jet fighter plane or race a bobsled — and then relive their custom ride over and over again. A design table similar to the one used at INNOVENTIONS at Epcot provides all the virtual tools users need to experience their own thrill ride: Online Sum of All Thrills
