Emily Calandrelli is an Executive Producer and an Emmy nominated host of FOX’s Xploration Outer Space, a correspondent on Netflix’s show, Bill Nye Saves The World, and writer and host of “Spotlight Space” a YouTube series from Lockheed Martin detailing their latest space projects in development.
Emily, who was named to Adweek’s “11 Celebrities and Influencers Raising the Bar for Creativity in 2017”, is an accomplished writer and speaker on the topics of space exploration, scientific literacy, and equality. Her first two novels in a STEM-focused chapter book series, The Ada Lace Adventures, center around an eight-year-old girl with a knack for science, math, and solving mysteries with technology, were released in August of 2017. The second book in the series, Ada Lace: Sees Red, was included in the National Science Teachers Association’s list of best STEM books for 2018. All 5 books are available at Barnes and Noble as well as Amazon.
Emily has given talks about the importance of science literacy, the benefits of space exploration, and the challenges for women in STEM careers for clients like Google, Pixar, MIT, Texas Instruments, CERN as well as dozens of K-12 schools across the nation. Her first two TEDx talks, “I Don’t Do Math” and “Space Exploration Is The Worst,” have garnered over 700,000 views on YouTube.
Prior to her work in science communication, Emily attended West Virginia University, where she received a Bachelors of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering, and MIT where she received two Masters of Science degrees, one in Aeronautics and Astronautics and the other in Technology and Policy. Through her work, she wants to make science and space exploration relatable, more welcoming, and more exciting than ever before in history.
