About the conference

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a conference specially designed for middle school girls. Our mission is to inspire girls to recognize their potential and pursue opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Our conference will be full of enjoyable hands-on activities led by real women who have real STEM jobs. They’ll tell you what it’s like to work in STEM and they’ll help you try out activities in their fields. There will be many different workshops to choose from. In addition to workshops, there will be a Career Treasure Hunt with prizes and hands on activities! Find out more about the National Expanding Your Horizons Organization by going to the National EYH Website and watch a video of girls enjoying an EYH event.

Animal Burrow Design Challenge: What kind of animal engineer are you? Can you make a "burrow" as dynamic as an underground animal? Join Lindsay Wildlife Museum and learn about underground animals and test your skills and creativity as you build your own marble maze. Meet a live burrowing animal and see what other creatures live down below.

Girls Hammer it Out: Have fun with hammers, nails and a tape measure as you build a small project you can take home. Professional carpenters will show you how to make it yourself with fasteners and wood.

Parents will have the opportunity to participate in workshops about STEM career opportunities for girls, how to support your daughter's desire to attend college and financial aid resources to help them get there.
