The SpectacuLAB coming to Epcot's Innoventions in November

Oct 26, 2017 in "The SpectacuLAB"

A new show called The SpectacuLAB will open in Epcot's Innoventions later this fall.

Located in Innoventions East and presented by Murata, the show will feature demonstrations that bring to life the wonders of science and innovation. 

Guests visiting The SpectacuLAB will be invited to step inside and join a group of real scientists, along with their eager tech-savvy intern, for a series of engaging experiments demonstrating basic principles of science.

To develop the show, Murata teamed with Walt Disney Parks Creative Entertainment and Science from Scientists, a national, non-profit which promotes the importance of STEM education with a mission to empower youth in science, technology, engineering, and mathematical fields.

The audience participation in the demonstrations with the on-hand scientists include:

  • Guests playing ultrasonic sensor drums, simply with the wave of their hand
  • Changing the colors of barometric pressure cubes by only raising or lowering the cube
  • Accelerometer sensors measuring the guest's force when using a hammer
  • Observing a scientist explain the principle of force by comfortably resting on a bed of nails.
