The Raytheon Company recently announced plans to unveil an interactive, math-based experience called "The Sum of All Thrills" in the Innoventions pavilion at Epcot at the Walt Disney World Resort, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The exhibit, set to open fall 2009, will engage children through a fun, interactive and educational experience that helps instill a lifelong passion for math, science and technology.
The Raytheon Company also announced the grand opening of The Family Technology Center at the Shades of Green on Walt Disney World Resort. Shades of Green is a U.S. Armed Forces Recreation Center used exclusively by active and retired military personnel and their families and Department of Defense civilians. The Family Technology Center, donated by Raytheon, will serve as guests' "home away from home" game room. The Center, equipped with plush couches, plasma televisions, personal computers, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox systems, offers guests an on-site extension of their entertainment experience where they can relax, connect and enjoy each other.
"Raytheon's donation of the Family Technology Center is a way of showing support to our active and retired military and their families," said William H. Swanson, Chairman and CEO of Raytheon Company. "It is our hope this gesture will show our deepest appreciation for all they do to support and protect our country." "We very much appreciate Raytheon's generosity in providing this unique gift as a tribute to our servicemen and women and their families," said Brian Japak, director of Shades of Green. "The Family Technology Center combines the best of both worlds -- the latest in entertainment technology with a touch of 'home,' making it the perfect way for guests to stay connected to each other and loved ones while on vacation."
It will be interesting to see what this new exhibit will look like when it opens later this fall.
