When it comes to theme parks, most people would think about the nostalgia of seeing old characters, hearing the music, getting a thrill at the roller coasters and enjoying quality time with loved ones. BUT, if you take a closer look, one can’t fathom just how much work it took to make each little detail. From the way each little character moves at It’s A Small World, to the magic of Haunted Mansion and more, you can easily see how important Science, Technology, Art, Geography, History, and most importantly Math plays a part in making the parks wonderful.
