The Realist’s Take

Listen up, future Tony Starks and Shuri wannabes! The Mouse House has traded in its glass slippers for lab coats and science goggles. In an oh-so-Disney twist to the dreary ol’ field trip, EPCOT went all in on innovation and STEM, turning theme park attractions into real-life science lessons. Not just any lessons, folks – interactive, hands-on, mind-blowing experiences that would make even the most bored school kid sit up and shout, “I get it now!” And as if that’s not enough pixie dust, Disney’s doubling down on its love for the community, dropping big bucks on nonprofits and schools in the Sunshine State. All hail to the Grand Duke of Innovation! So, ditch your calculators and textbooks and take note, this is Disney doing what it does best – creating magic, this time, with a splash of STEM.
