Walt Disney Imagineering, the creative branch of the Walt Disney Company, has uploaded a series of videos to their official YouTube channel titled Imagineering in a Box.
Imagineering in a Box is a free, online educational curriculum available through Khan Academy. Lessons compile expertise of Disney Imagineers from hundreds of career disciplines around the world to share with learners of all ages. As part of the 35 educational videos, the curriculum features project-based exercises that apply science, technology, engineering, art and math that allow learners to create themed experiences.
The videos are broken into three lessons – Creating Worlds, Designing Attractions, and Bringing Characters to Life.
Within each lesson are a series of videos and exercises designed to deepen your understanding of not only what Imagineering does, but how they approach problems and opportunities.
Of course, in the context of the Khan Academy, the videos provide learning opportunities. As a theme park fan however, the videos offer a behind-the-scenes look at how Imagineering operates.
