A Fantastic Look Inside Imagineering

Going inside of Disney's Imagineering building is a rare occurrence. Thanks to the recent Maker Camp, today we get a rare look inside. Continue after the page break and have a look...

Maker Camp is a month-long virtual DIY camp put on by Maker Faire. Hundreds of teens participate and learn about science, technology, engineering, and math and how to put them together to make useful things. These lucky kids recent got a virtual field trip that included a tour of Walt Disney Imagineering’s facilities and time with Imagineers like Bruce Vaughn.

During the tour students and other viewers got a glimpse at some of the unique and innovative processes Imagineers use during the design phase of their projects. The fields of dimensional design (model-making, sculpting and rapid-prototyping), robotics design and programming, ride design, and previsualization (virtual experiences of yet-to-be-built attractions and facilities) were the main focus. At the end of the tour students were able to ask Bruce and other Imagineers a few questions. Here now is the hour long webcast, Enjoy!
