Learn how to engage your students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through PBS Kids SciGirls!

In each episode, join bright, curious real girls in putting STEM to work. Then check out the website to play games, watch episodes, share projects, and connect with other SciGirls in a totally safe social networking environment!
