Day #11: Epcot Park, Orlando, Florida
After another early morning, we travelled over to Epcot, the theme park of tomorrow, where we embarked on our educational program of the park. The topic was leadership. We went over the traits of being a leader and the 4 qualities a worker at Epcot needs: Safety, Courtesy, Show, and Efficiency. The tour was very insightful, and helped us learn how to incorporate the leadership skills into our daily lives and school work. The Cast Members hosting the educational tour also allowed us to incorporate IB program goals and expectations into the leadership discussion and we may be able to combine all aspects of both.
After the interesting educational tour, we had 9 hours to spend in the massive theme park. The park is massive! There is so much greenery and it is divided into sections dedicated to certain countries where we were able to experience tastes, sounds, and smells from countries all around the world. From rides to movies to presentations and to restaurants, there were countless activities to choose from and experience. The entire park is dedicated to education, ensuring that all who attend bring back knowledge of the world around them.
There were many great attractions to ride, such as: Test Track by Chevrolet, Mission Space, and Soarin’. All fun experiences, however I think we are well prepped for the big rides in the next few days!!
So today was a very busy day, leaving all of us tired but excited for days to come.
