In small groups, students use data they gathered to create a visual representation of the ride’s transfer of energy for a more cohesive understanding of physics principles.
Jurassic Paleobotany
Students become paleobotanists in Jurassic Paleobotany, searching Jurassic Park™ for foliage from the era of the dinosaurs and comparing their findings to fossils to make identifications. Working in groups, students use tablets to photograph plants and plot their locations on a map of the area, experiencing the rush of scientific discovery in the process.
Kongtrol Panel
Bring students face-to-face with a sophisticated positioning system that controls an independently navigated ride vehicle through the rough, unpredictable terrain of Skull Island.
