Emily Calandrelli wants to "make science nicer, stupid." Or at least that's what she titled a 2018 TEDx Talk at her alma mater, West Virginia University. The talk took aim at the contempt and condescension often heard when addressing those who are not scientifically literate. Accessibility and affability in science education dominate her work, whether as host of the TV show Xploration Outer Space, or in her series of children's science books (Ada Lace). Calandrelli brings that friendly passion for learning to Riverview High School for a Free STEM Fair. There will be a series of activity stations, as well as a book-signing for Calandrelli's latest, Ada Lace and the Suspicious Artist. (You can read CP's in-depth interview with Calandrelli here.)
