Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day math and science conference aimed at girls in grades 6-10. The girls participate in exciting, hands-on workshops organized by JMU faculty, attend science presentations and demonstrations, and interact with JMU students who are studying math and science. 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.
Parents and teachers are invited to attend EYH with their students. This year, we will offer two adult workshops: a parent workshop and a college admissions and financial aid presentation. Parents and teachers are also welcome to accompany their students to all of their activities.
All participants will receive breakfast and lunch. There is no registration fee, but all students and accompanying adults and teachers must pre-register. We thank our generous sponsors for enabling us to offer EYH to participants free of charge again this year.
Registration for 2014 is now closed!
We've had an overwhelming response, and this year's conference is now full.
