About Amelia

Amelia mapAmelia is a young girl astronaut who is lost in space. Well, lost in the sense that she doesn’t know where she is, but she can always go home. She believes the best way to spend your time while being lost is to explore, learn, and have an adventure! She’s well prepared for anything that comes her way, be it a new planet, cosmic phenomenon, or potential alien friend; and she welcomes you to join her!

Amelia was originally created as a science literacy tool for kids (8-12 yrs). She has a lot of fun but she’s also always learning about her environment. She stays in her suit for safety, but also to make her as accessible as possible to all sorts of children. Similarly she doesn’t speak because sound won’t travel through space, but also so that she can transcend language barriers with her readers (and also new alien pals).
