Blast off with Miles from Tomorrowland
*Disclosure: I received an all expenses paid trip to Los Angeles for the coverage of several press events for Disney, Pixar and Google. All opinions are 100% my own.
One of the things that I wanted to be growing up was a scientist, but then I opted to go to college to be a teacher. I don’t regret it per-say but life has a way of changing before our eyes, and it still could happen. Although I’m not sure that I would go back to school, but one thing I have learned from my years here on Earth is that you can do anything you set your mind to, example, me blogging. But that is a story for another day, today we are going to talk about the dreams of boys and girls everywhere.
I know that just like me there are girls and of course boys that are wanting to grow up to be scientists. Whether they want to find the cure for cancer, aids, or just go to the moon every child should always shoot for the moon, because the worst case scenario would be landing among the stars. While in San Francisco this last week I traveled to Google Headquarters where we watched an episode of Miles of Tomorrowland. As well as got to meet Dr. Yvonne Cagle who is a scientist that has also been on the moon and she is honestly super sweet and easy to talk too. Her love science, the moon and of course kids as well as Miles from Tomorrowland shine through her personality.
We even had a chance to visit with show Creator and Executive Producer Sascha Paladino who told us he was inspired by becoming a dad. With the help of his team he has created an amazing show that boys and girls both will love for years to come.
Angela Navarro who is a Software Engineer at Google was also there as was Diane Ikemiyashiro who is the Director, Original Programming at Disney Junior and last but not least was Issi Anchalee Wenger who is an Engineer, and Creator of #IlooklikeanEngineer movement. It was an amazing panel that truly loves science, adventures and bringing this world to boys and girls everywhere.
I fell in love and can’t wait to see the adventures that Miles and his family (The Callistos) go on throughout the season. The family of course goes on many adventures but most importantly is the family bond that helps keep them close. This Saturday October 10th on the Disney Channel I will be tuning into a special Halloween-themed “Miles” episode. The episode will be “Ghost Moon / Stormy Night in a Dark Nebula” premiering at 8:30 AM ET/PT. Be sure to tune in for a wonderful and futuristic journey that will fuel kids’ interests in space, science and so much more!
World Space Week is this week so this episode will be the perfect addition to your families festivities. Then join me weekly after that as the Callisto family takes on even more scientific adventures!
