Expanding Your Horizons

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one-day symposium held during the spring break for middle school girls showing them the exciting and diverse experiences science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers have to offer. At the symposium, the girls can pick from a series of hands-on workshops to attend, including topics such as food science, biomedical engineering, and particle physics. The workshops are led by female professionals from a wide variety of STEM careers, including Committee on Evolutionary Biology graduate students! The event is organized by graduate and undergraduate students from University of Chicago, University of Illinois-Chicago and other universities in the Chicago area, as well as other STEM professionals.
