This past week, I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit the Google Headquarters in San Francisco, CA! The GOOGLE HEADQUARTERS everyone~ like a kid in a candy store! Myself, and 24 other bloggers had the amazing opportunity to sit with the most technologically talented people in the industry to discuss computer science and technology, and how it pertains to entertainment. Our world is sooo computer forward, that it is vital that we introduce computer science and coding to our little ones from the beginning. Of course in a totally fun way and through fun characters like Miles from Tomorrowland!
As a homeschooling mother, I am ALWAYS on the lookout for educational shows that both entertain my little ones but also educate them! Miles from Tomorrowland does just that. Appearing on Disney Junior and created by Sascha Paladino (known for Wonder Pets! and Ni Hao Ki Lan) , we follow Miles and his tech savvy family through their adventures in outer space as they teach us about space travel, computer science, and technology! The Callisto family encourages young children to reach for the stars! Miles from Tomorrowland was developed with the help of some really amazing people, who we had the chance to meet and chat with!
Disney Junior has requested the assistance from astronauts, engineers, and even a space architect (Yes, it’s a real career!) to develop a show that presents technology in a way that is fun yet inspiring to young children. Since we are celebrating World Space Week this week, I wanted to bring you some insight from Dr.Yvonne Cagle, a NASA astronaut that helps develop Miles from Tomorrowland and wishes to….
” Share the view from Space”
I thought it was interesting to hear that the most important thing about being in space is…..companionship! I would imagine it could get quite lonely up there in the vast darkness. Luckily for Miles… he is never alone and has an adventurous family to explore with (and PET!)
I made a point to write down ” The adventures you have with your family are the BEST!” – by Sascha Paladino. And, we couldn’t agree more! That’s why Miles from Tomorrowland is making such an impact on young kids. If you haven’t had a chance to check out Miles from Tomorrowland on Disney Junior, I invite you to check out the clip below for one of their upcoming Halloween episodes premiering on Disney Channel on October 10th!
There will be 2 great Miles Halloween episodes including “Stormy Night in a Dark Nebula” as shown above, and “Ghost Moon” where the Callisto family explore eerie sightings on the dark side of the moon. Here is a clip of that episode below:
For the next 7 weeks, not only will you get new Miles from Tomorrowland episodes but also new Captain Jack and the Never land Pirates! You can catch these new episodes starting October 10th~ Saturday mornings at 8 am on Disney Channel! It’s okay if you miss a few, there will be a catch-up marathon on October 31st!
Look for our post in December about our interviews at the Google Headquarters!
