Join NJSACC & the Garden State Girls STEM Collaborative at the SciGirls Screening Event


Fields like engineering, mathematics, and computer science are dominated by men. How do we as parents, caregivers, and educators encourage girls in STEM careers for the future? What are the keys to success?

"SciGirls," an award-winning PBS KIDS series, website and national outreach initiative, is changing 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-life SciGirls, who put STEM to work and save the day.

Izzie also invites viewers to hang out on the website - pbskids.org/scigirls - a safe, social networking environment where girls can play games, connect, create personal profiles and avatars, share projects and watch every episode.

Please join NJSACC and the Garden State Girls STEM Collaborative as we screen an episode from the NEW season of SciGirlsand offer fun activities for kids and families!*

* While the focus is on girls, boys are welcome and will have fun too.
