Expanding Your Horizons at Cornell

About EYH

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day conference for 7th–9th grade girls. The 7th & 8th grade girls each participate in three workshops organized by Cornell students and faculty, while 9th grade girls participate in two extended workshops. The goals of the conference are to stimulate the participants’ interest in math and science through these hands-on activities, to provide them with woman scientist role models, and to foster awareness of opportunities in math and science-related careers.

Although the focus of the EYH conference is to provide hands-on learning experiences for girls, we also organize a special session for accompanying adults to give them information on educational and career opportunities involving science, math, and engineering.

Other highlights of EYH include a keynote speech by a prominent woman scientist and a display of science books, resources, and games that participants and their parents can access throughout the day.
