At the hotel.
Using Universal's resort shuttle we'll head back to Universal StudiosTM for our final STEM workshop, Hollywood Rip Ride RockitTM Science, a hands-on physics activity featuring one of Universal's most thrilling rollercoasters. With park instructors, we'll learn about forces and interactions as we work in small groups using iPad and an interactive app to collect data and measure speed along Hollywood Rip Ride RockitTM. We’ll also learn about the ride’s transfer of energy and talk more about physical principles like the Law of Conservation of Energy. At the end of the activity, we will climb aboard Hollywood Rip Ride RockitTM to see how the science translates into thrills! Returning to the hotel, we’ll get ready for a pool party.
At the hotel pool pavilion, we’ll have a selection of sandwiches and sides, plus juice and water.
Pool Party! Continue the fun at the pool after lunch, relaxing with new friends while we enjoy our last afternoon together. If you like, you can use your ticket to return to the park this afternoon instead because our tickets allow us into the whole theme park all day.
At Margaritaville Orlando at Universal's CitywalkTM, we'll have a plated farewell dinner with soft drinks, coffee, tea, water; other beverages available for purchase.
Blue Man Group. It’s three guys with their heads painted blue who perform an indescribable mix of comedy, theater, light, sound, and music mixed with technology that’s different from anything you’ve ever seen before. More than 35 million people worldwide have attended a Blue Man Group show. It lasts about an hour and 45 minutes. Because the performers work with some materials that splash and can make a mess (they say it’s washable), wear clothing you don’t mind getting wet if you’re close to the stage. After the performance, we'll meet with Blue Man Group technical staff who will teach us how they use LED lighting, audio, and video technology to produce the sights and sounds of the show each night. We’ll then return to the hotel. Prepare for check-out and departures in the morning.
