Episode notes

In this Season 3 finale episode of the Create the Future podcast we speak to Emily Calandrelli, an MIT-engineer turned Emmy-nominated TV host and acclaimed author. Listen as we discuss the origins of her passion for engineering, reflect on the importance of representation, and learn why she’s dedicated to making STEM fun and accessible to kids—particularly young girls. We hear how her internship at NASA contributed to knowledge of water on Mars, explore why it’s important to never count yourself out, and discover how she’s using her newfound TikTok platform to spotlight important policy issues.

We’ll be back in early 2023 with Season 4. In the meantime, subscribe to us here on your podcast app and follow @qeprize on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for more updates!
