Expanding Your Horizons is an event for middle school girls to experience and enjoy a day involved with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Attendees will have the opportunity to meet female role models working in STEM who will showcase career options in their fields. Many topics in STEM will be explored, including wildlife, forensic science, astronomy, geology, public health, and chemistry. Girls will participate in hands-on activities that may include performing DNA fingerprinting, learning about the stars, creating a short video and working with goo. A variety of topics will be presented, and each student will take part in three workshops based on her interests. Registration is done online and will open in August, but to get more information in the meantime, please visit http://EYH.STEMatSU.org/.
