EYH to be held March 24, 2012


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 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 accompany their students to all of the activities. 

All participants will receive a free breakfast and lunch, and students receive a free t-shirt for participating.

The 2012 EYH Conference will be on March 24, 2012.  Check back in early 2012 for more details.
