Expanding Your Horizons

A conference from the Center for Materials Research to encourage middle school girls to pursue careers in science and math.

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day conference for 7th-9th grade girls. The girls each participate in three workshops organized by Cornell students and faculty. The goals of the conference are to stimulate the participants’ interest in math and science through these hands-on activities, to provide them with female scientist role models, and to foster awareness of opportunities in math and science-related careers.

EYH conference provides hands-on learning experiences for girls but also offers a special session for accompanying adults, to give them information on educational and career opportunities involving science, math, and engineering.

Other highlights of EYH include a keynote speech by a prominent woman scientist and a display of science books, resources, and games that participants and their parents can access throughout the day.

Please check the Website for more information and to register in Early 2011.
