The Imagineering in a Box videos cover everything from an overview of engineering software to interactive, hands-on projects that can be done without leaving the house. The program was specifically developed to help kids relate the Disney stories they already love to the skills they’re introduced to in each module. 

One of the best parts of this Imagineering for kids course is that older children and parents can tackle the classes together. At the end of the program, you’ll have a new appreciation for Disney theme park design, character development, and attraction engineering.
