Disney Junior’s “Miles from Tomorrowland” Inspires Audiences with Science

Disney Junior’s Miles from Tomorrowland has been around for several months and each episode brings forth something new to the viewer. Though we may not hear about it as much as Doc McStuffins or Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, the show is continues to be popular.

Still in its first season, the show features that of a family living in outer space. Lead character Miles and his sister, Loretta, work together to complete missions up in the Tomorrowland Transit Authority.

One of the reasons the show so is detailed is due to the fact that Disney teamed up with NASA and Google to get a clearer understanding of the technologically advanced futuristic world. In addition, one of the main points in the television series is to let young girls and audience viewers know that there are many careers in the science field. So to break that stereotype, the show has pushed forward in the science, technology, engineering and math aspect.

Sascha Paladino, creator of the show, told the Washington Post, “We want all kids to get interested in science, but we really felt that it was important for girls in particular to see strong female characters.”

Google’s research showed a direct link between the paucity of females in science featured in the media and the low rate of girls pursuing science, technology, engineering and math careers.

The percentage of women entering into computer science studies declined from 37 percent in 1984 to 18 percent in 2009. About 27 percent of all professionals in computer science are women, according to the Google study.

Together, the three companies put forth their best efforts in helping create characters that are idealistic and accurate. Just to show how accurate, the mom in the series, Phoebe, was inspired by astronaut Yvonne D. Cagle.

In addition, Google’s Julie Ann Crommett said, “We want to inspire really young kids to think about being makers of technology and not just consumers of technology.”
