Educational Video - The Science Of Disney Imagineering: Trajectory - Disney Educational Productions Classroom Edition
The Science Of Disney Imagineering: Trajectory
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.

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

Educational Videos - The Science Of Disney Imagineering: Levers & Pulleys - Disney Educational Productions Classroom Edition
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.

Educational Videos - The Science Of Disney Imagineering: Gravity - Disney Educational Productions Classroom Edition
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!

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

WINNER: Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2009
WINNER: CINE Golden Eagle, 2009

What bit of science do the Imagineers turn to when they want to make a splash? Fluids! In this DVD, the Imagineers demonstrate how they use fluids to their advantage in constructing rides and attractions like Grizzly River Run and The Seas with Nemo and Friends. Students will learn that a fluid is any substance that flows or moves easily due to its molecular make-up. They will also discover how fluid dynamics help us learn how fluids move and behave and also how fluids can be used to create mechanical advantage.

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

WINNER: Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2009
WINNER: Learning® Magazine 2010 Teachers’ Choice℠ Award

CINE Golden Eagle Award, 2009

What scientific principle is at work in every theme park ride the Imagineers create? It's Energy. The Imagineers reveal the role energy plays in popular theme park attractions such as Epcot's Test Track and the Mad Tea Party. Students will learn that energy is the ability to do work and that energy is constantly being transferred from one thing to another. They will also identify the difference between potential and kinetic energy and be able to establish examples and benefits of renewable energy.

The Science of Disney Imagineering: Design & Models
Our Price: $19.99

WINNER: 2009 Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2009
WINNER: CINE Golden Eagle Award, 2009

How did the Imagineers create a realistic looking snow-capped mountain in Florida for Animal Kingdom's Expedition Everest? They started with a design process and models. Using real theme park rides and attractions, like Radiator Springs Racers and Toy Story Midway Mania, students will see how design and models are used to put things together and make them function. They will learn the steps of the engineering design process as well as how both physical and computer aided design models are useful.

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

WINNER: Parents' Choice Gold Award, 2010

Which attractive force propels the launch of Rock n' Rollercoaster® at Disney's Hollywood Studios? Magnetism! In this DVD, the Walt Disney Imagineers demonstrate how they use magnets of all types throughout Disney's theme parks. From magnetic connectors that direct guests through attractions like The Seas with Nemo and Friends to playing back sound through audio speakers in Pirates of the Caribbean, Imagineers employ the forces of magnetism in a variety of ways. Students will learn about the attraction and repulsion of opposite poles, magnetic fields and domains, and electromagnets.

Not all of the science that the Walt Disney Imagineers do goes into the creation of wild rides. When designing Disney's Animal Kingdom and each animal's habitat, they had to take into consideration each animal's unique adaptations. Join Imagineer, Asa Kalama, as he meets the animal experts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to take a look at some animal adaptations in action. Students will discover the two primary types of adaptations – behavioral and physical – that help animals survive, and they'll get to see, and listen to, a variety of animal communication types.

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.
