The Walt Disney Company

Exhibit

As a company that sparks the imaginations of kids and families all over the world through storytelling, Disney plays an important role in nurturing the creative-thinking skills of the next generation of innovators and makers.

At the Disney World Maker Faire booth, kids and families are challenged to solve the Friends for Change Tangram Puzzle with help from Disney VoluntEARS. Puzzles are a great way to join together to practice problem solving, while creating inspiring designs of your own. The rules are simple; use all seven pieces to create a picture or design. The pieces must lie flat and are not allowed to overlap. It's a fun game with endless possibilities!

Disney is also excited to present its newest animated feature film, Disney's Big Hero Six at this year's Faire. Come see 3D printers in action creating miniature models of the film's robotic star Baymax, test your electronics building skills with littleBits, and sign up for the Big Hero Six XPRIZE Challenge where you can submit your idea to change the world.

There's more! Enjoy connected play and digital exploration through demos provided by Sphero and Snowshoe u2013 startup companies selected for a first-of-its-kind Disney Accelerator program powered by Techstars. The 15-week Accelerator mentorship and investment program gives today's innovators the opportunity to design the future of entertainment and technology like never before.
