EYH for media

Health Science is one of the areas that is included in the upcoming EYH event. SUBMITTED

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day conference that helps girls in grades 5-9 develop a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Hands-on workshops will be held in chemistry, biology, math, health sciences, computer information technology, and engineering. The workshops are not only educational, they’re an opportunity for girls to meet and work with women in the sciences.

Those role models can provide both inspiration and valuable insight into the world of science. This is the fourth year for the event on the Volunteer State Community College campus in Gallatin.

It will be held on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will also be workshops for adults who want to stay for the day. The $20 registration fee includes a t-shirt, lunch, and workshop materials. Scholarships are available. To register visit the EYH webpage at www.volstate.edu/eyh.
