Workshop - Designing a new product for Disneyland® Paris

The Workshop gives students the opportunity to put some of what they have experienced in the Seminar and during their time in the Resort into practice. Divided into teams of 6 to 8 and guided by our experienced facilitators, their task is to design a roller coaster using the frame, tubing and ball bearings provided. The aim is to use Mathematics to build the longest and fastest roller coaster in the group. Teams will need to ensure their design is relevant to Disneyland Paris and respects the Disney brand.

At the end of the Workshop, teams will give a 3-minute practical presentation of their roller coaster design to the facilitators, teachers and the rest of the audience, showing where mathematics has been used in their design. They will need to be prepared to answer questions and receive feedback.
