SciGirls charges into its second season full-STEM ahead! 

Ten new episodes showcase bright, curious, real girls using science, technology, engineering and math in their everyday lives. They design an underwater robot, engineer a “chill” ice-cream-making bike, apply real forensic methods to solving a mysterious crime, and more!

Animated characters Izzie and Jake are back, getting into jams that can only be solved by the real-life SciGirls – and STEM. 

In Season Two, there’s even more of the unique combination of TV and web that won the series a Daytime Emmy for “New Approaches” in its premiere season. Every episode of the TV show features onscreen clues that lead girls to a “mash-up” game on the website, where they can create their own, unique SciGirls stories. Plus, in other new interactive games, kids can search for underwater treasure, care for a colony of honey bees, and design wildlife dioramas.

And of course, kids everywhere can still join the SciGirls safe social network to create personal profiles, upload projects, and connect with other sci-minded girls nationwide.  It’s all about tweens and screens, and SciGirls’ sophomore season will empower girls – and their parents and educators – to tap into the collaboration, exploration, and authentic discovery. Every girl can be a SciGirl!
