Erin Youngs, Vice President of EPCOT, and Melissa Jeselnick, Walt Disney Imagineering, sat down with The Disney Blog at a roundtable interview to discuss the newly opened Test Track. We discussed the relationship between GM and Disney, the trillions of possibilities when it comes to customizing cars, and how the attraction encourages STEM learning, especially in children. By providing the customization elements like sparkles or pinks and purples they’re also giving young women the opportunity to dream about becoming a designer.
Youngs and Jeselnick are justifiably proud of the attraction and how it engages guests of all ages and genders in thinking about engineering design. Just what our nation needs right now and a perfect fit for EPCOT
