Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one day symposium for middle school girls to engage in exciting and diverse experiences that science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers have to offer. Volunteers from the Chicago STEM community organize short, hands-on workshops to directly engage with the girls at a critical time in their development. EYH is a nationally recognized program and we are proud to bring it to the Windy City for a tenth year!
The Spring conference was held on March 25th, 2023!
This year, we were back in-person for our Spring conference at University of Illinois Chicago.
Learn more about our programming and our relationship with the community in this video.
In the past we have also hosted Parent and Teacher Programs that run alongside the student conference. We hope to hold these programs again for the 2024 conference.
Increase the representation of women from diverse backgrounds in STEM careers by exposing middle-school girls to positive, hands-on experiences in STEM with women role models and equipping parents with knowledge of how to facilitate their child’s success.
As a volunteer run organization we rely on your support. We would appreciate both monetary and in-kind donations for raffles and goody bags. Please visit our donate page, all donations are tax-deductible.
