On Saturday 10 educators joined us for an introduction to the YES programs offered by Disney and then we got to explore all four parks. Their assignment: explore the parks through the eyes of a 5-12th grade student and then write a pre and post activity using Cosmeo for SciTechTreks upcoming field trips. First we met with the YES team, were explained the various programs, and then Dean led us through a sample chemistry ice-breaker and then we completed a "synergy" team building activity. After some lunch to refuel we went our own way to explore the parks (thanks for the park hopper passes!) and think of what we could do with what we learned. Some of us hopped from Epcot, to Animal Kingdom and then ended the night with fireworks at the Magic Kingdom. So yes, we came home exhausted!
Two questions: What does synergy mean? And don’t they look cute in their Discovery Blue ears?
