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.

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and sale of ceramic-based passive electronic components & solutions, communication modules and power supply modules. Murata is committed to the development of advanced electronic materials and leading edge, multi-functional, high-density modules.

I can't ever see myself waiting in line to see this 3rd grade science thing. Why did they close it off, distract all the other things going on? lol

I'm just glad Innoventions has *something* new, and something that is definitely in the spirit of Epcot. Hopefully Sum of All Thrills will reopen soon and another attraction/show or two could be added to round it out. Would be nice to make Innoventions East into something that resembles it's past....

I think this is great. I was watching the cup part thinking they should've gone with a bed of nails, and then whaddaya know, they did the bed of nails! I geeked out! Really great and educational. Is it perfect, absolutely not, but it's a solid small step in the right direction.

Yeah that was weird.

Cute, Small Scale Show. Nothing wrong with that. Might have been better recieved as a "step right up" show, but I understand why it has to be in a controlled environment. Also, a bit awkward when your intern looks twice as old as the "bosses".
