About the conference

Ready to have an incredible time doing experiments, using your imagination, and creating awesome projects? Then you belong with us and we want you to join in the amazing day of hands-on activities!!

Our ultimate goal is to motivate all young women to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st Century challenges. Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Las Cruces is a conference for young women in grades 5 - 10. Young women will have a chance to connect with STEM role models and near-peers, and learn more about careers in computing, science, technology, engineering, and math!

Online registration will open on Monday, December 7, 2015, and close on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at 12:00 Midnight. Walk-in registrations will be welcome on Saturday morning, but some workshops will be full by that time so we recommend registering early! Print the registration form prior to arrival, to make it easy: {{coming soon!}}.

Join us! It's going to be a blast!
