Did you know that February 16 – 22 is National Engineers Week? To celebrate, Raytheon (the sponsor of Sum of All Thrills) will bring park guests closer to the action and showcase that science really can be fun. At Epcot’s Innoventions West, from February 17 – 21, guests will get to participate in hands on experiments led by real scientists in a show called Raytheon’s “Science Thrills Live.”
During this interactive stage show featuring the host of “The Dr. Erika Show,” guests will get to participate in science experiments such as nucleation-triggered eruption (explode soda), conservation of angular momentum (go head to head against each other in a giant tug of war), thermoplastic recycling (melt milk jugs), and more.
Showtimes are at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m. The presentation is free to park guests and will last approximately 20 minutes.
Bonus! Everyone who visits will walk away with a giveaway. Once guests have participated, they can then head over to Sum of All Thrills to utilize more science in an effort to design and experience their own thrill ride.
