It looks as if Epcot hasn’t abandoned its focus on “edutainment” after all!
(And now we finally know what that casting call was all about.)
Disney has just announced a new interactive show promoting STEM literacy in schools. The SpectacuLAB is coming in November to Innoventions in Epcot.
In [The SpectacuLAB], guests will be invited to join a group of real scientists – and their tech-savvy intern – for a series of thrilling experiments that put scientific principles like ultrasonic pressure, barometric pressure, acceleration and force to the test. Through this funny and fascinating show, guests of all ages will have the opportunity to participate in the demonstrations and discover how each scientific principle has inspired amazing technologies we enjoy today.
This is great news for fans of classic Epcot, as it shows that Disney still has a place for science and discovery in “New Epcot.” It also shows us that Innoventions isn’t going away anytime soon, as a sponsored attraction will likely have a multi-year agreement in place.
