Expanding Your Horizons (EYH)

 

Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics™ (EYH)

A day planned for girls in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades in the Hill Country area
to explore math and science as high school and college study possibilities.

To challenge each girl, the day is filled with lab experiences on science topics but with a twist to peak female interest. For example, girls in a chemistry lab might learn how to make lipstick or body lotion. Topics change each year, but typically, girls select from future science careers like veterinary medicine, forensics, steam ecology, genetics, engineering and computer science.
