About Science Girl

Portrait of Melissa Ober a.k.a Science Girl.
Melissa Ober holds a college degree in Elementary Science Education from the University Of New Mexico. Melissa has applied her years of knowledge in and out of the classroom to put the “A” in S.T.E.A.M. through a unique on-stage production that combines science, education, and theater.

Melissa grew up in New Mexico amongst a family of engineers and teachers and has been interested in science education since her early teenage years. She joined the Explora Youth Intern Program and received in-depth informal science education training through the museum until she graduated from high school.

Ever since the premier of the original shows in 2016, Melissa has performed all over the state of New Mexico and grown her business to include hands-on science experiences. Melissa also worked to achieve her degree in Elementary Education at the University of New Mexico, which she earned in 2020.
