"What is the force that puts the thrill in thrill rides? Gravity, of course! One of the biggest challenges for Imagineers in designing theme park attractions, like Disney's Rockin' Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, is figuring out the best way to work with-and sometimes against-gravity's constant 1G force. Learn to define gravity and explain the relationship between gravity, mass, and distance. Apply an understanding of forces to explain the feeling of weightlessness on a rollercoaster ride"--Container
Electricity ( visu )

Magnetism ( visu )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 901 libraries worldwide
"Which attractive force propels the launch of Rock n' Roller coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios? Magnetism!

Students will learn about the attraction and repulsion of opposite poles, magnetic fields and domains, and electromagnets."
Energy ( visu )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 862 libraries worldwide
"What scientific principle is at work in every theme park ride the Imagineers create? It's Energy. The Imagineers reveal the role energy plays in popular theme park attractions such as Epcot's Test Track and the Mad Tea Party. Students will learn that energy is the ability to do work and that energy is constantly being transferred from one thing to another. They will also identify the difference between potential and kinetic energy and be able to establish examples and benefits of renewable energy."--Container
Bill Nye the science guy by Bill Nye( visu )
17 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 828 libraries worldwide
"In Storms, see what happens when huge masses of air collide. Destructive or not, storms benefit us. The tropical regions of the Earth would be too hot to inhabit--and the subpolar regions too cold -- if we didn't have hurricanes and typhoons to distribute the Earth's heat so efficiently."--Container
Friction ( visu )
6 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 806 libraries worldwide
Here the Imagineers showcase how different types of friction - static, kinetic, and rolling - come into play when they're designing Disney's theme park rides and attractions. From rollercoaster wheels for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad to the shape of a Disney Cruise Line ship's hull, the Imagineers can use tribology (the study of friction) to find ways to reduce drag

Students will learn that a fluid is any substance that flows or moves easily due to its molecular make-up. They will also discover how fluid dynamics help us learn how fluids move and behave and also how fluids can be used to create mechanical advantage"--Container
