EYH: STEM for Middle School Girls Conference
Each year Western Montana AHEC helps coordinate the annual, one-day, Expand Your Horizons Conference for Middle School Girls.
The Missoula Expanding Your Horizons Conference, held on the UM campus each spring, is a unique opportunity for girls in grades 6 through 8 to engage in hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) led by female scientists, engineers, and technology specialists. This event fosters middle school girls' enthusiasm for STEM careers, informs them of professions and opportunities, and encourages them to continue their studies in science and math to reach their goals and aspirations.
There is a $30 registration fee, and 100 girls are accepted on a first come-first served basis. Scholarships are available.
