About the conference

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a conference for girls in middle school. This day-long event will include hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). At the conference, you will get a chance to meet STEM role models and learn more about careers in those fields. You'll get to visit the United States Naval Academy and explore exciting careers such as aerospace engineering, systems engineering, medicine, physical science, naval intelligence, and other possible occupations for civilian and military women in the Navy.

PLEASE NOTE: You'll attend three different workshops during the day but we will pick the workshops for you - you can choose to sign up with a friend!
Be prepared to be active!!! You'll do some listening, but you'll also engage in some really fun hands-on activities including biometrics, cybersecurity, boat-building, underwater exploration, optics and energy.
