Fun and learning in one!

By applying the principles they learn in the classroom to the real world, learners gain an appreciation of its relevance to their everyday lives. They will have the opportunity to ask questions and get more insight into working in science during the interactive Q&A sessions.
As part of the immersive event, each student will receive their own workbook in advance of the event for pre-trip preparation as well as science park challenges to complete whilst enjoying the Disney® Parks. These challenges cover the fundamentals of Science at KS 4 and encourage students to apply their knowledge in a new and unique learning environment.
