Expanding Your Horizons is a conference  in which middle-school girls participate in hands-on activities in math, science and engineering. The primary activities at the conferences are workshops led by adult women in STEM careers. The girls have fun in the workshops while they also learn about STEM and STEM-related careers and interact with positive adult STEM role models.  Girls also are able to talk about being a girl in a STEM field in a safe environment!
