What type of workshops are held?
Each EYH conference features hands-on activities and experiments. These are the "bread and butter" of every Expanding Your Horizons event. At EYH conferences girls participate in fun and challenging hands-on computing, math, science and engineering activities led by women mathematicians, scientists and engineers.
Through these important hands-on workshops, young
women learn that studying math and science can be fun! They participate in fun
experiments and learn about the importance of studying as much math as possible
in high school. By using local volunteers to lead workshops, girls meet with
mathematicians, engineers and scientists who live and work in their own
communities, who serve as role models at the conference, and who may serve as
possible mentors in the future.
When does registration open?
Conference and workshop registration is open from December 9, 2016 through Wednesday, January 26, 2017. Space is limited and the conference fills up quickly. We encourage you to register early.
