Twin Cities PBS (TPT)’s mission is to enrich lives and strengthen our community through the power of media. Established in Saint Paul 58 years ago, TPT now operates as a public service media organization that harnesses a range of media tools to serve citizens in new ways — with multiple broadcast channels, online teaching resources, educational outreach and community engagement activities.
For over thirty years, TPT has been public television’s national leader in inspiring young people, especially girls and youth of color, around the pursuit of STEM studies and career paths. Landmark media projects such as the long-running series Newton’s Apple and DragonflyTV have also provided parents, educators and community leaders with the resources they need to teach, support and empower the next generation of STEM leaders. We have continued that tradition of excellence with SciGirls.
SciGirls combines an Emmy award-winning nationally broadcast PBS television show (entering its fifth season), multiple websites, and community-based programming to engage girls ages 8-13 in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning and career paths. The SciGirls educational network includes 175+ partner organizations in 34 states and Puerto Rico. More than 3,000 informal educators have been trained in SciGirls’ principles of gender equitable and culturally responsive STEM education, who have engaged more than 60,000 diverse young people at SciGirls-themed classes, camps, clubs, afterschool initiatives and more.
