"...And the examples of the scientists in action have tremendous appeal for young girls. SciGirls connects with kids: they're done in a relevant, authentic, exciting manner. Plus, they're easy to integrate into teachers' normal science units. You don't have to use the whole DVD. You can use one little segment at a time, and just slip it in to wherever it fits in a unit."
"SciGirls provides great real-world examples of middle school students involved in the scientific process..."
