Meet the Characters


izzie

Izzie

Izzie is a friendly tween-age everygirl, juggling the demands of school, family, friends and sports—and not always successfully! Fortunately for Izzie, as webmaster for the SciGirls site she gets a firsthand look at real girls using ordinary science to do extraordinary things—like learning how dolphins communicate or how a wind turbine creates sustainable energy. When she finds herself in a jam that only science can fix, Izzie magically transports herself into the website to drum up much needed help. A quick pass through the Picture Gallery on the Homepage, and Izzie jumps into the real-life SciGirls video to find herself knee-deep in a swamp or elbow-deep in a test kitchen. Ultimately, real SciGirls help Izzie solve her own problems, answering her call: “SciGirls, I need you!”




jake

Jake

Jake is Izzie’s best friend and co-conspirator as she navigates the obstacle-course of middle school. Izzie’s friend since preschool, Jake gets involved in her madcap adventures—for better or worse! And whether sitting on Izzie’s front stoop, checking in at school or connecting by web camera, the two manage to muddle through, learning some intriguing science along the way.
