EXPANDING YOUR HORIZONS

Friday December 14, 2018 · Contra Costa College

Welcome to Contra Costa College Expanding Your Horizons

 

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conferences are day-long events that include hands-on activities designed to introduce 5th-8th grade girls to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, (STEM).

 

At the conference, girls will get a chance to meet STEM role models and learn more about careers in those fields.

 

Check back soon for an up-to-date list of workshops planned for our next event!

 

Sign up today by asking your local teacher, counselor, or by contact our conference coordinator Nancy Barba at nbarba@hsistem.com.

"We look at science as something very elite, which only a few people can learn. That's just not true. You just have to start early and give kids a foundation. Kids live up, or down, to expectations."

- Mae Jemison, First Black Woman in Space

ABOUT US

A Committed Collaboration

Contra Costa College + EYH

 

EYHN is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing gateway STEM experiences to middle and high school girls that spark interest in STEM activities and careers.

 

All presenters and volunteers have strong ties to the Contra Costa County community. We want to share our passion for STEM subjects with younger girls, to encourage them to pursue STEM subjects in their future studies and careers.

 

EYH Impacts

  1. Provide a forum for girls to engage with women involved in STEM
  2. Promote interaction with peers in hands-on activities
  3. Introduce girls to a variety of STEM careers and encourage them to pursue the exploration of STEM

Don't be afraid of hard work. Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Don't let others discourage you or tell you that you can't do it. In my day I was told women didn't go into chemistry. I saw no reason why we couldn't.

- Gertrude Elion, Nobel Prize winning Biologist
