What scientific principle keeps coming up...and up...when designing Disney's theme park attractions? Trajectory! The Imagineers demonstrate how forces and motion play a leading role in creating rides like California Adventure's California Screamin' and Toy Story Midway Mania. Students will learn the definitions of projectile and trajectory, see how Newton's First Law of Motion relates to these principles, and how to apply the physics of motion to predict and control the trajectory of a projectile.

Each Imagineering DVD includes a bonus "try it yourself" experiment and an interactive activity to reinforce key learnings.

WINNER: Learning® Magazine 2009 Teachers’ Choice℠ Award
WINNER: Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2009
WINNER: Instructor Magazine Best DVD Series, 2009

How do the Imagineers make elephants fly? Actually, it's simple... simple machines, that is! Here, the Imagineers give a new look at how levers and pulleys were utilized to create attractions such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Soarin' Over California. Students will see how levers and pulleys make work easier by either multiplying or redirecting the effort we put into them. They will identify the two forces involved in using a machine and learn to calculate mechanical advantage, given effort and resistance.

Each Imagineering DVD includes a bonus "try it yourself" experiment and an interactive activity to reinforce key learnings.
