Learning Goals

The backbone of each SciGirls episode is the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) that drive each project. We focus on the process of investigation and not always the end result. Every experiment isn’t perfect, but each episode showcases important characteristics of a STEM project: teamwork, challenges, problem solving, freedom to express ideas and support along the way. We also model important science process skills as kids set out to: predict, observe, measure, classify, experiment, record, interpret, graph and communicate. These skills are at the heart of both the scientific and engineering design processes.

In addition, our entire approach to SciGirls—the TV show, the website, and our outreach and educational activities—is rooted in what research has revealed about how to engage girls in STEM. A quarter of a century of studies have converged on a set of common strategies that work, and these have become the foundation of SciGirls:
