If you are someone who enjoys seeing the behind-the-scenes side of Disney, then be sure to take a look at the video below from Disney Parks Blog. This is where creativity and the potential future of Disney technology can connect as tens of thousands of students from around the world kick off the 2023 FIRST Robotics Competition season. It’s considered a “sport for the mind” and combines the fun and thrill of competition with the mental mastery of science and technology, so it’s no wonder that several Disney Imagineers will again serve as mentors. Disney has been a proud supporter of the FIRST organization since its inception more than 30 years ago.
“So many of the things they do with FIRST translate directly to what we do here at Walt Disney Imagineering,” says Imagineer Greg Johnson. “And not just the technical skills, but the interpersonal and teamwork skills that have direct parallels to how we complete projects.”
