Science with Sophie | Founder | Chicago

Hybrid • Science comedy and activities for everyone


Science With Sophie is an interactive science comedy series inviting viewers to explore science all around them and remember they are brave, curious, funny, smart scientists every day. With an all-female writing team and cutting-edge teaching pedagogy like the Next Generation Science Standards, the show combats inequity in STEM fields and underrepresentation of women in mainstream science media.

SOPHIE | "I am ELATED! What an honor to be counted among such game changers. I am in near-tears with the thrill of knowing how many incredible humans are taking risks to make the world a better place. I hope to meet - and collaborate with - some of them soon!"
