About the conference

Online registration is closed however there will be walk-in registration available on the day of the conference.

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) in Albuquerque is a conference for girls in the 5th-9th grade. This event will include hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). At the conference, girls will get a chance to meet STEM role models and learn more about careers in those fields. Our ultimate goal is to motivate girls to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st Century challenges.

This year a signed release form is required for participation in the conference. This information will be shared on the registration confirmation page.

Check-in and registration will be held at Dane Smith Hall, located on the UNM campus, on Saturday, January 28th at 8:00 a.m. THIS YEAR PARENTS AND/OR GUARDIANS WILL BE REQUIRED TO SIGN-OUT THEIR CHILD/STUDENT. Students will remain in Dane Smith Hall until their parent/guardian arrive for check-out. If there are any questions please call Rochelle Larson at (505) 243-3200.

Registration will close on midnight, Monday, January 23rd (unless the conference fills prior to the date).
