SciGirls, a 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 bright, curious real-lifeSciGirls, 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 pbskidsog.org/scigirls beginning in February 2012.

Educators across Texas are invited to participate in SciGirls professional development opportunities and discover how to engage young women (ages 8-13) through research-based, high quality activities and resources.

Participants attending the 3 hour workshop will:

  • Learn latest research for exciting and engaging girls (and boys) in STEM

  • Experience FOUR hands-on STEM activities including light up electric circuit dough creatures, slow-falling parachutes, bouncing balls and wind measuring devices

  • Leave with curriculum for over 25 hands-on, video enhanced activities that put a creative twist on teaching STEM

  • Learn how to modify any activity to excite and engage kids in STEM using the SciGirls Seven

  • Discover additional online resources that enhance teaching and learning experiences for all kids
