Expanding Your Horizons is a career day organized by the Math/Science Interchange that is intended to inform young women about careers in math- and science-related fields. The conference is for girls in grades 5-8. Girls participate in hands-on workshops such as dissecting pig hearts, isolating DNA, and making colors with chemistry. There are also workshops for parents, teachers and counselors about making math and science a career option for girls.
There is a $15 fee for each participant to cover lunch and materials. Note that only paid registered participants may attend the conference. Please register online at www.expandingyourhorizonsla.org; there is no on-site registration.
We are in need of volunteers to help with the conference. Since this is a conference for girls, women volunteers to help out for the day are very welcome. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Dr. Eleanor Siebert at email@example.com.
