Space Inspiration
Posted on 12/15/2014

Students from the RSTA BE-IT Exploratory Program were inspired by their recent visit with Emily Calandrelli, host and co-producer of FOX's Xploration Outer Space. Emily, who hails from West Virginia, is someone to aspire to, with her TV show and her two Masters – in Aeronautics & Astronautics and Technology & Policy – from MIT! 

Emily has a particular interest in getting young people excited and interested in STEM careers; this shone through in her presentation to our students. She talked a bit about her path from high school to where she is now, stressing how there’s so much opportunity to do amazing things with STEM careers, even if you’re not one of the top students in high school. During the presentation, she shared so many helpful tips, showed an episode of her show, Xploration Outer Space, and answered questions. Emily undoubtedly impressed and inspired more than just a few of our students!
