On-the-ground: The SciGirls CONNECT educators’ network now includes 116 educational partner organizations in 34 states.

On-the-air: The SciGirls television series is featured on 91% of U.S. TV households, with a 100% market penetration in the top 25 markets. SciGirls episodes have been broadcast over 44,500 times on 481 public television channels. Based on available Nielsen audience measurements, SciGirls has achieved an estimated 25 million gross viewer impressions.
