**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

"This Daytime Emmy-award winning series, produced by Twin Cities Public Television, aims to change the way millions of girls think about science, technology, engineering, and math, or STEM.

Meet bright, curious, real tween girls who put science and engineering to work in their everyday lives. In every episode, animated hosts Izzie and Jake face a new challenge. With the help of the “SciGirls’” website, Izzie finds a different team of middle school girls who work with scientist mentors to design their own investigations on a wide variety of topics, from the environment to technology, engineering to nutrition, and beyond.

In Seasons 1 & 2, the SciGirls study dolphins, engineer a giant mechanical puppet, unearth archaeological secrets, create high-tech fashions, and much more. “SciGirls” inspires kids to explore the world around them and discover that science, technology, engineering, and math are everywhere!

As homeschoolers, we are always looking for engaging and educational shows to help our kiddos get a close-up look at science in action.  SciGirls is an amazing show that teaches great STEM lessons that all children can benefit from.  As an added bonus, is shows my daughter that young girls can succeed in careers in the realm of science, technology, engineering and math.  This DVD set has really gotten both kiddos more interested in the "how" and "why" of science and I couldn't be more thrilled!  What a great resource for our curriculum:)
