Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a free one-day conference aimed at girls in grades 7-10. The girls each participate in exciting, hands-on workshops organized by JMU mathematics and statistics faculty and attend a keynote speech by a prominent woman scientist. The goals of the conference are to stimulate the participants' interest in math and science through these hands-on activities, to provide them with female scientist role models, and to foster awareness of opportunities in math and science-related careers.
While the workshops are aimed at young women in grades 7-10, all young women in grades 6-11 are invited to attend. Parents and teachers are invited to accompany their students to all of the activities.
All participants will receive a free breakfast and lunch. There are no registration fees.
Online registration for the 2013 Conference is now closed.
