During this COVID-19 situation, educators and parents have shifted to find more learning resources and opportunities available online for children. I thought it would be fun to share a few cool Disney resources available:
Disney 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.
Disney Animals on DisneyNow – An educational and informative look at some of the majestic animals in our care at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each video is approximately 2 minutes in length and free to access. Additional information about our animals can be found on DisneyAnimals.com for anyone who would like to do a deeper dive than just the videos.
Draw Mickey Mouse at Home with a Disney Parks Artist – A complete series of how-to tutorials on drawing Mickey Mouse through the years for the budding artist in your life. Learn to draw other characters like Tinker Bell, Stitch, Winnie the Pooh, Buzz Lightyear and more too!
Pixar in a Box – Pixar in a Box is a behind-the-scenes look at how Pixar artists do their jobs. You will be able to animate bouncing balls, build a swarm of robots, and make virtual fireworks explode. The subjects you learn in school — math, science, computer science, and humanities — are used every day to create amazing movies at Pixar. This collaboration between Pixar Animation Studios and Khan Academy is sponsored by Disney.
Thank you Paula from Disney Institute for reminding me about these fun learning opportunities by Disney. Be sure to check out Disney Institute’s blog too at https://www.disneyinstitute.com/blog/
