Which attractive force propels the launch of Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios? Magnetism! In this program, the Walt Disney Imagineers demonstrate how they use magnets of all types throughout Disney's theme parks. From magnetic launchers that propel the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, to the audio speakers in Pirates of the Caribbean, Imagineers employ the forces of magnetism in a variety of surprising ways. Students will learn about the attraction and repulsion of opposite poles, magnetic fields and domains, and electromagnets.
