Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day conference for 7th-9th grade girls. The girls each participate in three workshops organized by Cornell students and faculty with several goals in mind.

  1. Stimulate the participants' interest in math and science through hands-on activities.
  2. Provide them with female scientist role models.
  3. 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, demonstrations and games that participants and their parents can access throughout the day.

EYH would not be made possible without the help of many volunteers. Our volunteers range from committee chairs, workshop leaders, buddy volunteers and general volunteers. For more information on becoming a workshop leader, please view the Lead A Workshop page. Information on other volunteering opportunities can be found through emailing eyh@cornell.edu
