The Universal Studios Hollywood STEAM App series combines national education standards with real-world critical thinking to transform our top attractions into creative learning environments, with extraordinary educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.

Students start their day with a 2-hour educational experience, and through the use of provided tablets, they learn how we bring attractions to life while applying the concepts they are learning in school. All programs meet California State Standards and include a teacher toolkit full of helpful lessons and differentiation. After each program, the students get Express Access for the program’s respective ride, and then they will spend the rest of the day enjoying the Park!

TRANSFORMERS™ ROLL OUT – SIX DEGREES OF FREEDOM: Students learn about the engineering principles of the Six Degrees of Freedom, to reconstruct the ride vehicle’s motion sequence.

REVENGE OF THE MUMMY DIG SITE DETECTIVE: Students use the power of scientific observation to draw conclusions from their surroundings, just as real scientists must.

JURASSIC PALEOBOTANY: Students will participate in a photo scavenger hunt where they will compare species of flora, and then record their findings just like paleobotanists!
