Is The Land your favorite ride at Epcot?
It is definitely my son’s favorite. He can’t get enough of seeing the fresh fruit and vegetables grow, and he will be so excited to learn that Disney Youth Programs is adding an option to get behind the seeds.
Disney Youth Programs is adding to its curriculum of unique learning opportunities that give students the chance to turn the Disney Parks into their classrooms. Starting in early 2019, students can uncover “The Science Behind the Seeds,” a program that explores sustainable food production and how emerging scientific methods can meet our future food needs.
The Science Behind the Seeds program, which takes students through Living with the Land at Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort, is a hands-on exploration of how science, technology, sustainability and teamwork combine to generate potential solutions to meet the needs of a growing population. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of how plants are cultivated, about technologies that protect plants from pests and diseases without pesticides, as well as about new techniques to grow plants without soil, using mineral-nutrient solutions in a water solvent.
Students will also learn how to implement some of these processes at home, as well as discover new fruits, vegetables and grains for their own gardens.
The Science Behind the Seeds is a three-hour program offered to K-12 students in groups of 10 or more. Teachers and students can register for The Science Behind the Seeds, as well as learn about other educational opportunities available through Disney Youth Programs at Walt Disney World Resort by visiting DisneyYouth.com.
