Expanding Your Horizons STEM Conference for Girls
Elementary, K-8, Middle
Expanding Your Horizons is a one day STEM conference at Sac State on Saturday, October 10, 2015. EYH is designed to encourage and empower young women to pursue education and careers in STEM. A study by the American Association of University Women found that the critical years where girls lose interest in math and science are the 7-10th grade. Women continue to be underrepresented in critical fields related to math and science. Through fun, hands-on activities; education and career exploration; and peer support and professional mentors, the EYH conference aims to foster awareness and stimulate girls’ interests in STEM fields.
