Presenters needed for math/science conference for girls
Organizers of an MSU conference for junior high-aged girls are seeking female professionals who can present and serve as role models for girls interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. The annual conference, called Expanding Your Horizons, takes place Saturday, April 6 on the MSU campus. More than 200 girls from throughout Montana will participate in engaging STEM activities ranging from robots to fossils to personal finance.
Volunteers who would like to share their expertise and enthusiasm on a STEM topic will develop a 40-minute workshop and hands-on activity. Training is offered for new presenters. The event is designed to expose young women to exciting STEM careers and encourage them to pursue STEM courses in high school and college.
Departments and organizations who are interested in financial or in-kind sponsorships are also encouraged to participate.
EYH is a national program that, since 1992, is hosted locally by MSU's Extended University outreach program.
