Expanding Your Horizons scheduled for March 2
This year the Santa Fe and Los Alamos Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conferences are combined into one, all-day session to be held on March 2 at the Santa Fe Convention Center. The Northern New Mexico EYH Conference offers fifth- to 12th-grade girls opportunities to participate in hands-on workshops about science, technology, engineering, math and related fields. Demonstrations and other activities are available at an onsite career fair.
Up to 250 young women are expected to participate in the workshops that will include subjects such as computers and robots, veterinary medicine, cryptography and ocean science.
Conference registration fee is $5 per student and includes lunch and snacks. Students unable to afford the cost may submit a waiver request when they complete the registration form.
Concurrent sessions for teachers and sponsors could include funding opportunities for science- and math-related activities, continuing education and professional development, best practices and networking for those involved in science education.
Early registration closes Feb. 15.
