Theme parks earn billions of dollars in profits annually, and the industry relies on engineering innovation to create a welcomed retreat for thrill-seekers. Get a behind-the-scenes look at your favourite theme parks, including Disney, Six Flags, and Universal Studios as we investigate the physics of attractions and themed set design. Participants will use 3D printers and a laser cutter to fabricate their own creations, and learn the art of animation and materials engineering.
