*All students and accompanying adults must register in advance in order to attend EYH.*

How to Register a Student in Grades 6-9 (Two Steps)

  1. Complete the online student registration form.

    A registration form must be completed for each student who will be attending.  Due to increasing demand for EYH, available student spaces will be released on a staggered schedule.  There will be two phases of registration (General Registration and Limited Registration).

    • During General Registration, each student will indicate her top 6 workshop choices from the list of workshops on the EYH website.  When an individual workshop fills, it will no longer be listed as option on the registration form.
    • During Limited Registration, individual workshop choices will not be available.  Students will instead rank their interest in the following categories of workshops on the registration form: Biology (with live animals), Biology (without live animals), Computers, Engineering, Math, and Physical Science (i.e. Chemistry, Earth Science, and Physics).

    Registration spaces will be released according to the following schedule.  We expect each of the blocks of spaces to fill very quickly.  When a particular block of spaces fills, the registration form will say that registration is closed, and you should return at the next listed time to register.  There will not be a waiting list this year.

    Date/Time Number of Spaces Released
    Friday, Feb. 24, 7:00 AM 90  (General Registration)
    Friday, Feb. 24, 12:00 PM 60 (General Registration)
    Friday, Feb. 24, 7:00 PM 30 (General Registration)
    Saturday, Feb. 25, 7:00 AM 30 (General Registration)
    Sunday, Feb. 26, 2:00 PM 40 (Limited Registration)

    Note that in between registration blocks you will see a message on the registration site that says:
    "We have accepted all the registrations we can at this time. Registration is closed. We're sorry we missed you."
    This will only be true until the next block begins.

  2. Complete and submit a release form for each student participant.

    The Release and Consent Packet contains liability release documents and consent and assent forms related to program evaluation.  Students must have a parent complete and sign the release form in order to attend. The consent and assent forms are optional, and further details regarding these documents are included on the front page of the packet. We strongly encourage you to submit your forms in advance via email or mail, but students may also bring the completed forms on the day of the conference.

How to Register as an Adult Accompanying a Student or as a Teacher (One Step)

All adults planning to stay at EYH during the conference must register by completing the online adult registration form.  During registration, adults will indicate which adult workshops they plan to attend.  If you are registering as an adult to accompany a student to EYH, please complete the student’s registration first as the student spaces will fill much more quickly.

How to Apply to Volunteer at EYH (Open to Past EYH Participants Who Are Currently in 10th Grade)

Past EYH Participants who are currently 10th graders can apply for a new volunteer program.  More details about the application process can be found on the High School Volunteer Program page.


How to Cancel Your Registration If You Can No Longer Attend

If you discover after registering that you can no longer attend EYH, it is extremely important that you cancel your registration by emailing as soon as possible.  No-shows waste our limited financial resources and take spaces in workshops that could be filled with other interested participants.  By canceling your registration if you cannot attend, you help us to accommodate more students and keep EYH free for all participants.
