Recently, I told you all about a new exhibit for Epcot’s Innoventions called The SpectacuLAB. This new exhibit, which is presented by Murata is officially now open!

The SpectacuLAB will have set showtimes and the show will take place daily at 10:30 a.m., 11:45 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:15 p.m., and 4:30 p.m. Guests visiting The SpectacuLAB will be invited to join a group of scientists, along with their eager tech-savvy intern, as they showcase a series of engaging experiments that all are geared to demonstrate basic principles of science. Through the course of the show, Guests will have the opportunity to take an active part in the demonstrations and discover how basic scientific principles actually form the foundation of some of the technologies we enjoy today.

Throughout the exhibit, Guests will be able to participate in demonstrations including:

  • 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

Currently the other exhibits open in Innoventions are the Colortopia and Take a Nanooze Break.

Wow….I kind of thought Innoventions was dead. I guess maybe it’s not because it was announced that SpectacuLAB is coming this November. SpectacuLAB will be an engaging new interactive show where Guests will be invited to join a group of real scientists, as well as their tech-savvy intern for a series of experiments that put scientific principles like ultrasonic pressure, barometric pressure, force and acceleration to the test.

SpectacuLAB is sponsored by Murata which is a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of advanced electronic components, and Science from Scientists, a nonprofit organization that aims to improve STEM literacy at schools. The interactive and entertaining experiments will allow guests to discover how science and Murata technologies come together to create products such as consumer devices, healthcare equipment, and automotive electronics.

Throughout the exhibit, Guests will be able to participate in demonstrations including:

  • 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

Currently the only other exhibits open in Innoventions are the Colortopia and Take a Nanooze Break.
