Expanding Your Horizons Conference

Sat, Mar 23 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

The Expanding Your Horizons Conference is a unique opportunity for girls in grades 6 through 10 to engage in hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) led by San Diego’s top scientists, engineers, and specialists. This unique event is designed to foster young girls’ enthusiasm for STEM careers, inform them of professions and opportunities, and encourage them to continue their studies in science and math to reach their goals and objectives.

The Conference Experience - Similar to a professional conference, girls receive conference materials, are engaged by several workshops, and spend the day interacting with their peers and mentors.

Workshops- Each girl attends three hands-on workshops presented by San Diego professionals in the STEM industry and academia sectors. Girls leave each workshop with an innovative perspective on a STEM career and an authentic science experience.

Mentors - Mentorship is an important aspect in reaching any career goal and the EYH Conference is no exception! Girls are guided through the day’s activities by female college-age students, most of whom are pursuing degrees in science, technology, or engineering studies.

New Partnerships - As the next generation of scientists, mathematicians and engineers emerge, the EYH Conference hopes to forge important peer to peer relationships early on. Girls are arranged in groups according to grade and encouraged to interact with their peers and mentors during the day by remaining in the same group. What better way to make new friendships with your fellow future colleagues?
