Watch two girls dive into a crystal-blue Catalina reef to uncover sunken secrets about biodiversity. Or four friends engineer a giant twelve-foot pig puppet for a May Day Parade. Or a group of tweens remake a wetland so endangered turtles have a place to call home.
Welcome to SciGirls, a new weekly series that airs on KLRU each Tuesday at 4:30 pm starting Feb. 16.
Each half-hour episode follows a different group of enthusiastic, real SciGirls, who collaborate, communicate, engineer and discover. They’re accompanied by two animated characters – a plucky SciGirl named Izzie and her best friend Jake, who tie the series together with their ongoing adventures.
