The SpectacuLAB show

The SpectacuLAB is now open at Epcot's Innoventions East in Future World.

You'll find The SpectacuLAB across from Colortopia, in the former Vision House exhibit.

The interior has been completely remodeled into a theater-type setup, with seating for around 100 guests. Children are invited to sit on the floor in-front of the stage.

Presented by Murata, guests are 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.

Here is a look at the very first presentation of The SpectacuLAB from earlier this morning.

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.
