About EYH

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day math and science conference for girls in grades 6-8. The participants engage 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. Parents and teachers are invited to attend EYH with their students.  We plan to offer adult workshops again this year.  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 register in advance.  We thank our generous sponsors for enabling us to offer EYH to participants free of charge again this year.

Mission Statement: Expanding Your Horizons at James Madison University engages young women in high-quality hands-on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities and small-group interactions with female scientist role models to foster and support the young women’s interest in STEM fields, to increase their awareness of opportunities in STEM-related careers, and to empower them to see themselves as future participants in these fields and careers.

Notice: This year, the EYH conference is designed for girls in grades 6-8.  Registration for the 2020 conference will open in Feburary 2020.  To receive reminders about registering for the 2020 conference, please join our email list using the link below.
