On the 10th of February 2016, 6 Year 9 and 3 Year 10 students went to Disneyland Paris for an ICT conference. We attended two seminars and a workshop at the IMax Cinema and learnt how ICT is used to operate every aspect of the Disney Park and Studios. We had a great experience learning the secrets behind Disney's rides and how it all works – it was amazing, especially the way they do the special effects! The best part of the conference was the workshop where we designed our own rides for the park and presented them to our classmates; Ms Lawes was really impressed with the way we used the learning from the seminars to influence the rides we designed. During our free time we were allowed in the park and studios and went on all the rides - they were great fun! We also loved the food, especially the self-service buffet at the Cheyenne Hotel where we stayed. Overall we had a great time but came home feeling exhausted from it all.
