As a coach or sports club manager, you’ll know that a strong, successful team is more than just a group of talented individuals with immense skill sets. It is a close-knit group of players who work together to achieve a shared goal.

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

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.

‘What’s on Stage’ named it Best New Musical of 2017 and now School of Rock is headbanging its way into its second full year in the West End, at the New London Theatre.

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
