Safety is the top priority for anyone working in the theme park industry. “Of course, the goal of any ride is to be thrilling. But the engineers’ goal is to make it safe,” says Steve Alcorn. “This requires a combination of mechanical engineering and control systems engineering.”

The SPECIAL EFFECTS activities are structured around a thematic framework based on science content. For upper elementary and middle school-age learners, the concepts underlying each activity are expressed at a stage that is developmentally appropriate to them. The focus of elementary school-age students is on observable features and actions that invite exploration as a means to a concrete understanding of scientific discipline.
