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, 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 UC Merced will be holding its first annual Expanding Your Horizons Conference. We would to welcome all young women in the Merced County.
Please join us in a life changing and exciting experience.
