Disney will help theme park guests learn that “Science Rules!” as they celebrate the National Engineers Week February 21-25, 2011 with special guest Bill Nye the Science Guy.
The famous mechanical engineer TV host with a passion for math and science (and co-star of Epcot’s attraction Ellen’s Energy Adventure), will be giving four presentations at Epcot’s Innoventions, sponsored by DEP and Underwriters Laboratories. Bill Nye’s presentations will be held in the Innoventions West building at 11am, 12, 1 and 2pm on February 23, 2011 only.
Other Innoventions sponsors, including Raytheon, Underwriters Laboratories, Liberty Mutual & Reedy Creek Fire Department and Walt Disney Ride & Show Engineering, will also offer engineering-related presentations in their own venues. Nye will present in the “flex” space within Innoventions.
The celebration of National Engineers week will be held 10am-4pm daily
All presentations will run continually throughout the day and last approximately 5-10 minutes during which kids and adults alike will enjoy such outrageous topics as “Dancing Spaghetti”, “Polishing Pennies”, “Choke the Smoke” and “Outrageous Ooze”.
Admission to the National Engineers Week celebration is included with Epcot theme park admission and no prior registration is required.
