Indian kids to attend Disney's education series
Eleven groups of Indian school students will fly to the United States from this summer to see Disney's magic.
This will be the first time that the students will participate in the numerous educational offerings of Disney Youth Education Series (YES) at the Walt Disney World Resort. The 11 school groups represent Amritsar, Phagwara, Jalandhar, New Delhi and Surat.
Some of the programmes the groups will enjoy include "Disney Production Arts and Sciences" which demonstrates the art of movie making from storyboarding to marketing a production; "Disney Animation Magic" where students learn the history of animation and the impact that Walt Disney had on the medium.
"Dynamics of Technology" shows how technology has advanced society, and "Properties of Motion: Energy and Waves" will explain how visual effects are used in Disney attractions. "Ocean Discoveries," "Making Waves with a Marine Career," and "Disney Leadership Excellence," are also part of the groups' itineraries.
Traditionally, travel agencies from the region offered student packages to the Northeast and California. With the increased demand for specialized trips to Florida, Smithsonian Travel in New Delhi worked with Receptively Yours travel in Ocoee to create packages for Central Florida.
The packages include several days at the Walt Disney World Resort, including a minimum of two Disney YES programmes. Disney YES areas of study include physical and natural science, culture and leadership, art, humanities and history.
