Disney Junior Partners with XPRIZE to Launch ‘Miles From Tomorrowland: Space Missions’
And now Disney Junior has partnered with XPRIZE to launch ‘Miles from Tomorrowland: Space Missions,” an all-new program that is part of Disney/ABC Television Group’s ‘Summer of Creativity.’
The program, which kicked off on July 16 in at the New York City Hall of Science, encourages kids ages 2-8 to get involved in STEAM learning activities and make their own “out-of-this-world” creation with a chance to win prizes.
The kickoff event included a rocket building event and gave kids chance to meet an astronaut. There was also a planetary-themed mini golf course to teach kids about the laws of motion and gravity.
Kids participating in the Miles from Tomorrowland: Space Missions can submit their creations in three categories – technology, vehicles, and planets. The grand prize winner will be announced in September and will win a trip to Cape Canaveral, Florida to visit the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex.
Four runner-up winners will receive 3D printers from 3D Systems, and 100 second runner-ups will win Google Cardboard Viewers. For details and rules on the contest visit DisneyJunior.com/SpaceMissions.
