The Science of Disney Imagineering: Friction
Our Price: $19.99

WINNER: Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2010

Do Walt Disney Imagineers encounter resistance in their work? Of course they do... when it comes to friction! Here the Imagineers showcase how different types of friction- static, kinetic, and rolling - come into play when they're designing Disney's theme park rides and attractions. From rollercoaster wheels for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to the shape of a Disney Cruise Line ship's hull, the Imagineers can use tribology (the study of friction) to find ways to reduce drag. Students will learn the different types of friction as well as the roles that gravity and Newton's First Law play.

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

Disney The American Presidents Volume 1: Revolution and the New Nation & Expansion and Reform
Our Price: $19.99

WINNER: Learning® Magazine 2010 Teachers’ Choice Award
WINNER: Parent's Choice Gold Award, 2010

American history is so much more than dates and documents—it’s the dynamic story of the real men and women, immigrants and Native Americans, who together built our country. Disney’s The American Presidents is a fresh and relevant narrative (developed with a former producer of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report) about the people who led this country through change and the lives they affected, from an early idea of democracy to our first African-American President.

The first in a four-part series, this DVD includes short-form biographies of the first 11 U.S. presidents—beginning with George Washington and the birth of a nation, and ending with the "dark horse" James Polk. The educational bonus feature "The Making of the Presidency" explores how and why the United States selected presidency over monarchy. The DVD features interviews and insights from political experts and commentators Sam Donaldson, Wesley Clark, Paul Begala, Melissa Harris-Lacewell and many more.

Try the interactive whiteboard content on every DVD—it’s an exciting, competitive game that uses video clips, photographs and quotes to test students’ understanding of the presidents, their political positions, and why they matter in the American story.

Our Price: $19.99

WINNER: Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2009
WINNER: Instructor Magazine Best DVD Series, 2009

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.

The Science Of Disney Imagineering: Levers & Pulleys
Our Price: $19.99

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.

The Science Of Disney Imagineering: Gravity
Our Price: $19.99

WINNER: Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2009
WINNER: Instructor Magazine Best DVD Series, 2009

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 rollercoaster ride. Cool!
