Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we have to cancel the EYH Chicago Conference for 2020. We apologize for the inconvenience and will follow-up with more information. Thank you for your understanding.

Given the unprecedented spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) across the U.S., Techbridge Girls’ Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conferences are following the direction of our federal and state governments around social distancing and non-essential events. Per the recommendation of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that no gatherings with 50 people or more take place for the next eight weeks, all EYH conferences that were originally scheduled to take place from March 17, 2020 through May 10, 2020 have now been canceled or postponed until after May 10.

Student Registration is now CLOSED!

This year, the conference will be held at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) campus.
We also host Parent and Teacher Programs that runs alongside the student conference and are free for all attendees. You can learn more about the Parent Program here and the Teacher Program here.

The Parent and Teacher Programs will take place on March 28th, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a one day symposium for middle school girls to engage in exciting and diverse experiences that science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers have to offer.  Volunteers from the Chicago STEM community organize short, hands-on workshops to directly engage with the girls at a critical time in their development.  EYH is a nationally recognized program and we are proud to bring it to the Windy City for a eighth year!

Learn more about our programming and our relationship with the community in this video.
