Education needs to be relevant and exciting to students. The Disney Youth Education program hosted me at the end of this past summer to experience three of their programs first-hand. In today's podcast, I interview the director of the program Aaron Joyner to talk about the philosophy behind Disney's education magic. I also share some of my first-hand experiences and observations from the trip.

I was hosted by Disney at the end of this past summer 2019 where I experienced a unit of physics, science and lighting, and another unit from the drama and music department. It was enjoyable. All opinions are my own and this post was not pre-approved or endorsed by Disney.
