Learning Goals

The backbone of each SciGirls episode is the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) that drive each project. SciGirls focuses on the process of investigation and not always the end result. While every experiment isn’t perfect, each episode showcases important characteristics of a STEM project: teamwork, challenges, problem solving, freedom to express ideas and giving/receiving support along the way. SciGirls also models important science process skills as girls 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 SciGirls approach—the TV show, website, 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.
