    I am sad to say that I never took Physics, so when I started working with a bunch of 12 year old students on the subject….I was struggling. I bought this DVD to help the kids (since I couldn’t) with the topic of levers and pulleys. This DVD really explains things in a simple and interesting way. Not only did the kids get a lot out of it…I did as well! Thanks, Disney! I liked this one sooooo much, I just bought 3 more from the series! Great Stuff!

    Disney is one of the world’s most trusted names when it comes to children’s entertainment. What is less well known is the Disney commitment to high quality, kid friendly educational materials. “The Science of Disney Imagineering” is an impressive series of instructional DVDs specifically created for young viewers in grades 5 through 8 with a 30 minute running time. The three DVD productions focus upon a single science concept. “The Science of Disney Imagineering: Gravity” investigates the science and nature of the force behind such thrill rides as roller coasters and other major Disney theme park attractions. “The Science of Disney Imagineering: Levers & Pulleys” focuses on the mechanics of how Disney theme park elements such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and other remarkable machines work. “The Science of Disney Imagineering: Trajectory” illustrates the role that forces and motion play in creating theme park rides such as the California Adventure’s California Scramin’ and Toy Story Midway Mania. Each of these superbly produced, informed and informative DVDs are enhanced with ‘try it yourself’ experiments that children can do to reinforce learning the key principles and concepts presented. All three of the “The Science of Disney Imagineering” titles are enthusiastically recommended for school and community library DVD collections, as well as an ideal supplement for home schooling science studies curricula.

    Levers and Pulleys didn’t seem like an exciting subject when I put this into the DVD player… but Disney changed my mind. To see levers and pulleys and how they are used within the Disney parks– loved it! The bonus activity with a try it at home lever and pulley experiment is a nice added touch to the project as well.
