With so many families at home together right now, we thought this would be an especially useful time to share this programme, which is available to all and completely free

Disney's Imagineering team is offering "one-of-a-kind" learning experiences with Imagineering in a Box – a free online programme offering lessons in theme park design and engineering.

The series of interactive lessons have been created in partnership with the Khan Academy and Pixar, and is designed to give a behind-the-scenes look at Disney's Imagineering development process.

The course is split into three parts – world-building, attraction design and character development – with each part taking a minimum of two hours to complete. Following the completion of the course, participants will be challenged to think up and design their own theme park experience based on the teachings, which combine story development, conceptual design, maths, physics and engineering. The offering includes a series of 32 videos of Disney Imagineers, real-world case studies and interactive activities.

"With so many families at home together right now, we thought this would be an especially useful time to share this programme, which is available to all and completely free," said Josh Gorin, creative development executive at Disney Imagineering.

"When I was growing up, I would visit the Disney Parks with my family and ask, 'how did they do that!?' I watched Disney’s behind-the-scenes TV specials and realised that Imagineering was an actual 'job' – it inspired what I studied in school and ultimately led to my current role.

"Today, we are so excited to share with learners of all ages the unique ways that science, technology, engineering, and math can be combined with creativity and design to create larger-than-life entertainment for millions all around the world. Maybe, we’ll be helping the Imagineers of tomorrow to get their first start."
