The second season of PBS Kids’ science-based show for tween girls, “SciGirls,” will launch on Oct. 10 with additional interactive features.

The series combines live-action and animation to empower girls in science, tech, math and engineering. Season two will see even more TV-Web integration, with every episode featuring onscreen clues that lead girls to a mash-up game on the website.

The show also has a SciGirls social network that allows fans to create personal profiles, upload projects and connect with other sci-minded girls nationwide.
