In this video, the producers of SciGirls give the inside perspective on the approach and process behind this multi-platform media initiative and share a sneak peek of upcoming projects.

SciGirls (pbskids.org/scigirls) is an Emmy award-winning PBS Kids television show, website, and educational outreach program that draws on cutting-edge research about what engages girls in STEM learning and careers. The transmedia effort has reached over 25 million girls, educators, and families, making it the most widely accessed girls’ STEM program available nationally. SciGirls’ videos, interactive website and hands-on activities work together to address a singular but powerful goal: to inspire, enable, and maximize STEM learning and participation for all girls, with an eye toward future STEM careers. The goal of SciGirls is to change how millions of girls think about STEM.

Now in its 4th television season, SciGirls is exploring ways to engage new communities of girls, through a series of original Spanish language episodes featuring Latina girls and mentors. And through the SciGirls Code project, we’re working to bring girls into the technologies of the future. SciGirls was recently honored with two 2016 Parents’ Choice Gold Awards for the PBS Kids television series and PBS Kids website.
