Welcome to Contra Costa College Expanding Your Horizons

 

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conferences are day-long event 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.

 

Our 2017 conference will be held on Friday, December 8th.

 

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

About Us

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

"Science is not a boy's game, it's not a girl's game. It's everyone's game. It's about where we are and where we're going."

- Nichelle Nicholas, Former Nasa Ambassador and Actress
