When schools closed in the spring due to the pandemic, Eva’s grandparents suggested that we check out Xploration Outer Space streaming on Amazon Prime Video. That show, which became a household favorite, is hosted by the wonderful and brilliant Emily Calandrelli — who is Eva’s guest this week on the Dream Big Podcast! Emily has also been featured as a correspondent on Bill Nye Saves the World and is the author of the science children’s book series, the Ada Lace Adventure.

Emily also has a new Netflix show called Emily’s Wonder Lab where she takes kids through lively mind-boggling experiments that will get your kiddos excited about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), which is Emily’s great passion. As you will see from the episode, Emily has great energy and is so much fun. We encourage all Big Dreamers to check out her new show on Netflix! Our family has been watching her amazing experiments on her Youtube and Instagram all summer, and we know Emily’s Wonder Lab on Netflix will be great educational fun for the whole family.
