I received the following information as a blogger via Walt Disney Publications. While I attended an expense paid trip by Disney to the press events for The Good Dinosaur, Inside Out, and Miles From Tomorrowland, all opinions are 100% my own.
Back in October I shared with my experience visiting the Google Headquarters in California! It was such an awesome visit, and I was able to learn more about Disney Jr’s MILES FROM TOMORROWLAND, one of my son’s favorite television shows, and it’s connection to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
What an absolutely amazing experience! You can read more about about my visit in detail, and check out some of the photos I took on their campus, at the link above.For those that aren’t familiar, MILES is centered around the Callisto family, who live on the Stellosphere, and spaceship! Miles Callisto himself is an adventurous, curious, but at times reckless good-nature boy.
One aspect I absolutely love about this show is the emphasis on the STEM and encouraging children to pursue that field of study. Now my son is only four years old, but thanks to MILES he is already showing such an interest in engineering and space exploration. He actually starts STEM classes next year once he is five! Did you know that by the year 2020, there will be 1.4 million computing-related job openings? Definitely sounds like this is the field to look into!I love that Disney Jr is even taking their focus a bit further and really working to inspire young girls to explore this often male-dominated field. On the show, Miles has a sister, Loretta, who is quite the smart young lady! She just loves science, and in an upcoming episode, she will use her awesome coding skills to discover a hidden planet! Check out “The Discovery Expedition” episode of MILES FROM TOMMOROWLAND this Friday on the Disney Channel at 10:30 AM ET.
