SCIGIRLS, a new PBS KIDS weekly series and website, is out to change how millions of tween girls think about science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM! In each episode, animated characters Izzie and her best friend Jake find themselves in jams only science can fix. To set things right, Izzie calls on smart, curious real-life SciGirls, who put STEM to work and save the day. Izzie also invites viewers to hang out on the website, a totally safe social networking environment where girls can connect, create personal profiles and avatars, share projects and watch every episode.
SCIGIRLS premiered nationwide on Public Television stations and online at pbskidsgo.org/scigirls in February 2010.
