Khan Acadamy and Disney offer “Imagineering in a Box”

Khan Academy is a non-profit devoted to offering free video courses for preschool to high school and beyond on a wide range of subjects with an emphasis on math, science, and engineering.

They have teamed with Disney to create a Middle and High School-appropriate course called Imagineering in a Box where students can design their own theme park.

From their Educators’ Guide:
“Imagineering in a Box is designed to pull back the curtain to show students how artists, designers and engineers work together to create theme parks. We take a behind-the-scenes look that learners love and make it an active experience through student-driven projects. We do this by weaving together videos and exercises into lessons that culminate in a long form project. The goal is to make students aware of careers they never knew existed and deepen their understanding of the process, concepts and terminology of the creative workplace.”
