The Amoeba Sisters is an illustrated science YouTube channel created by sisters "Petunia" (a self-taught cartoonist) and "Pinky" (a former high school biology classroom teacher). The channel specializes in teaching biology concepts at the high school level - and beyond - by using illustrated cartoons. When the channel grew unexpectedly, the sisters formed Amoeba Sisters LLC and begin to make resources to complement their videos. While many of the resources they offer are free (and free items are hosted on their website), they also created for-sale resources available exclusively on TpT to help support their work.Prior to working full-time on Amoeba Sisters, "Pinky" worked in three different public school districts for a total of twelve years. Her experience has included being a classroom AP / on-level biology teacher, instructional technology specialist, campus science specialist, and district science coordinator. Currently, she writes the content for both TpT resources and the Amoeba Sisters videos, and she does most of the voicing for the videos as well. Prior to working full-time on Amoeba Sisters, "Petunia" worked in a large public school district as a program evaluation analyst. She is a self-taught cartoonist, and she does all of the illustrations for the Amoeba Sisters YouTube channel and Amoeba Sisters resources that are on TpT. She also creates GIFs, comics, and a webtoon all linked on the Amoeba Sisters website.
