STEM subjects at Disneyland Paris: Take learning outside the classroom with The Roller Coaster Study Experience


Toy Story Rollercoaster n009560

STEM skills are essential and contribute to the UK’s global position as the sixth largest manufacturer, as well as producing 10% of the world’s scientific research. Engineering alone accounts for £800bn annually. Perhaps most excitingly, STEM students can potentially earn amongst the highest salaries of all new recruits.

At Study Experiences we hope to challenge the way young people think about science, technology, engineering and maths by raising awareness of the exciting and wide-ranging careers that studying these subjects can lead to.

If you teach or attend classes in STEM subjects, Disneyland Paris must be one of the best places in Europe to see how your studies are put into practice.  Parades and shows; street theatre, night time AV and firework events are all part of the daily routine using STEM skills in a multitude of ways.

Our school and youth groups love the show and it’s easy to see why: with its awe-inspiring young cast playing note-perfect live music, a hilarious script, relatable themes, and a hint of anarchy, – it’s a perfect musical for school groups. Continue reading

If you teach or attend classes in performing arts, Disneyland Paris must be one of the best places in Europe to see how studies are put into practice. Parades and shows; street theatre, nighttime AV and firework events, character meet and greets, are all part of the daily routine.
