About the show

SCIENCE WITH SOPHIE is a science comedy series for girls and everyone. This fast-paced and quirky show invites viewers to explore science all around them and remember that they are brave, curious, funny, smart scientists every day. Hosted by science educator/actor/comedian Sophie Shrand, the cast of wacky characters (all played by Sophie) educate and entertain while showcasing how diverse STEM careers can be.

The series is Sophie’s upbeat solution to the serious problem of inequity in STEM fields and underrepresentation of women in mainstream science media. Using cutting-edge teaching pedagogy such as the Next Generation Science Standards, each episode explores science in daily life by asking questions, trying experiments with easy-to-find materials, and encouraging viewers to think deeply and creatively.
