NH SEACOAST EXPANDING YOUR HORIZONS (EYH)

NH Seacoast Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is an all day conference designed to immerse young women who are in 6th – 8th grades in hands-on experiences in science, math, engineering and technology.  Professional women from math and science related fields facilitate workshops, talk about their careers, and serve as role models for the participants.

EYH presents science in a way that is fun, educational, and relevant to daily life.  The conference includes an inspiring keynote speaker, hands-on workshops and closing ceremony.  All activities take place at the Cooperative Middle School in Stratham, NH.

The conference is free to all participants thanks to volunteers and corporate sponsors who believe in the advancement of women in the areas of math and science.

 

  

Goals of the Conference

  • to provide young women with opportunities to meet and interact with positive women role models who are active in math and science related careers;
  • to involve young women with limited opportunities for success in positive experiences in mathematics and science;
  • to increase the interest of young women in math and science by providing exciting and fun hands-on learning experiences;
  • to encourage young women to study as much math and science as possible by showing them the benefits of education and its relevance in their lives;
  • to foster awareness of career opportunities in science and math related careers.    

 

 

GREAT HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

Hands-on workshops provide a “can-do” experience that is too often missing in traditional science and mathematics classes.

At EYH, girls see dedicated professional woman working with their hands and then emulate them. Personal involvement and appropriate encouragement give the participants a positive sense of their capabilities.

Workshops are designed to empower young women in the sciences.  They offer the opportunity to challenge personal limits and set new goals.
