The Raytheon Family Technology Center at Shades of Green
The Family Technology Center was donated to Shades of Green by Raytheon, serves as the military guests' "home away from home" game room and computer center.
The Technology Center with plasma televisions and personal computers offers guests an on-site extension of their Disney experience, where they can connect online.
In years past plush couches and console games were available, making this the perfect spot for the kids to wait while the parents were in line to but tickets next door. Sadly these are all now gone. The consloe games were replaced with a couple tired board games.
The Family Technology Center is located right next to Shades of Green's Ticket Office. The kids can hang out here while Mom and Dad wait in line for their Disney World tickets.
"Raytheon's donation of the Family Technology Center is a way of showing support to 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."
The Old Console Games...
The Family Technology Center, donated by Raytheon, celebrates the partnership between Raytheon and Walt Disney Co., which will includes interactive, math-based experience called, "The Sum of All Thrills" at INNOVENTIONS at Epcot® at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The exhibit engages children through a fun and educational experience that helps instill a lifelong passion for math, science and technology.
Raytheon also sponsors an annual Character Breakfast at Shades of Green.
