Review by School Library Journal Review

Gr 5 Up-Each approximately 30-minute episode of this outstanding series is designed to encourage girls to develop an interest in STEM fields by becoming active participants in the scientific process. The majority of a segment consists of a small group of middle school girls working with a female scientist in the field and learning about conducting research in a specific topic, with a cartoon introduction featuring hosts Izzie and Jake. Profiles of the participating girls are also included. At press time, all except one of these episodes are available freely online at, although Spanish subtitles and audio are only present on the DVDs. The website also includes documents and activities related to each topic. One concern is that the titles of each episode are somewhat cryptic; one must watch the first few minutes to determine the subject matter. While the series is directed toward girls, it could be used in a general science classroom as well as in clubs serving middle school students. VERDICT Highly recommended as an entertaining and inexpensive introduction to the scientific process.-Ann Brownson, Eastern Illinois University, Charleston © Copyright 2015.
