Expanding your Horizons

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.
eyh-boulderEYH, AAUW Boulder’s community project, will be held:
on February 24, 2018,
at 10:00 am – 2:30 pm,
at University of Colorado – Engineering  Center Engineering Drive Boulder, CO 80302

Plans are underway for another successful workshop – the College of Engineering Center has been obtained, presenters and college guides are being recruited, food is being planned, leaders for the adult programs have been scheduled – now we need YOU to volunteer to help.

Please mark your calendars. We will need many volunteers on that day. Say “Yes” when you are contacted!
