Sum of All Thrills

Sum of All Thrills

Scouts can build their own theme park ride!

Visit Epcots Innovention building and stop by Sum of All Thrills.  This is where scouts and their ride partner will take a turn in the Designer Lab creating their one-of-a-kind ride experience. Using an interactive touchscreen design panel, scouts can add drops, barrel rolls, twists and turns using their math, science and engineering know how. During the testing phase, adjust height, velocity and follow other recommendations to modify your ride experience based on mild to wild settings.

Once your ride design has been locked into the system, head up a short flight of stairs while your ride specifications are programmed into a 4-D robotic simulator. Buckle-up and get ready to feel every bump, twist and drop of the ultimate ride you just created – complete with the realism of high-definition video, audio and motion.

Want a little more Disney magic? After your ride, you’ll receive a card with your one-of-a-kind ride experience program. Visit MathMovesU to replay your ride on your home pc. Not visiting the parks soon enough? The MathMovesU site also has an online Design Your Own Ride and Game experience scouts may want to check out.

Webelos & AOL Elective Adventure: Engineer

Webelos & AOL Elective Adventure: Engineer

Do all of these:
1. Pick one type of engineer. With the help of the Internet, your local
library, or a local engineer you may know or locate, discover and
record in your book three things that describe what that engineer
does. (Be sure to have your Webelos den leader, parent, or
guardian’s permission to use the Internet.) Share your findings with
your Webelos den.
2. Learn to follow engineering design principles by doing the following:
a. Examine a set of blueprints. Using these as a model,
construct your own set of blueprints or plans to design a
project.
b. Using the blueprints or plans from your own design,
construct your project. Your project may be something useful
or something fun.
c. Share your project with your Webelos den and your pack by
displaying the project at a pack meeting.
3. Explore other fields of engineering and how they have helped form
our past, present, and future.
4. Pick and do two projects using the engineering skills you
have learned. Share your projects with your den, and also exhibit
them at a pack meeting.
