Disney has introduced a new educational offering for students, Disney Imagination Campus, which seeks to help them to “learn how to apply their imaginations to solve a lifetime of challenges — in wildly creative ways.”
Starting in January 2022, students can enroll in reimagined workshops in the subjects of Arts & Humanities, Science & Technology, and Leadership & Innovation, with tiered offerings for differed grade levels — all created in collaboration with Walt Disney Imagineering.
“Our Walt Disney Imagineering partners are renowned for blue sky thinking, masterful storytelling, and creative problem-solving,” said Maryann Smith, vice president of Sales, Services & Events at The Walt Disney Company. “We’ve taken these key skills and worked with Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney Live Entertainment and other Disney thought leaders to create new educational experiences to challenge students to use their imagination, all within our real-world learning laboratories and performance venues across our theme parks.”
Performing Arts workshops and performances will also make a return.
“Opportunities for students in the performing arts to engage in performance and workshop experiences have existed at Disney Parks for more than 40 years,” said Matt Conover, vice president of Disneyland Resort Live Entertainment. “Disney Imagination Campus will build upon that legacy and expand on stage and backstage experiences led by world-class Disney arts professionals. We worked with educators from a variety of disciplines to bring their expertise so our new campus will offer educational experiences for students from all over to enjoy.”
Disney will also be collaborating with Kahoot!, which will bring an interactive element to select tickets-only experiences, performance workshops, and educational workshops.
“Kahoot!’s long-standing relationship with Disney is now expanding beyond the classroom, bringing interactive learning experiences to the Disney Parks designed for Disney Imagination Campus students,” said Eilert Hanoa, CEO of Kahoot! “Whether students are visting the self-guided challenges that will test their comprehension and retention of key learning objectives during their visit. This is a holistic, groundbreaking, and experiential approach to education.”
