Emily Calandrelli

Emily is an Emmy-nominated science TV host. She's featured as a correspondent on Bill Nye Saves the World and a producer and the host of FOX's Xploration Outer Space. Her first science children's book series - the Ada Lace Adventures - is now available on Amazon and everywhere books are sold.

In addition to writing, Emily is a professional speaker and gives talks on the topics of space exploration, scientific literacy, and equality. 

Emily's educational background is in engineering and policy. At West Virginia University she received bachelors in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. She received her Masters from MIT in Aeronautics and Astronautics as well as Technology and Policy.

Emily is wildly passionate about space exploration. Through her show, she wants to prove that the space industry is more exciting today than ever before in history. As the host, Emily works to explain science-related topics in an easily digestible, and entertaining, way. 

Increasing the level of scientific literacy among the general public is also something Emily cares deeply about. She believes that everyone, despite their educational background, can understand scientific topics. Emily hopes to convince more people of this and foster a higher level of scientific literacy in society through various projects and speaking engagements.

Lastly, Emily wants to inspire more females to pursue STEM careers. She believes most young students, especially women and minorities, don't realize how many amazing, creative, and often free opportunities exist for students who pursue STEM majors. She plans to change that.
