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 sixth year!

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

Dear EYH Chicago participants:

We realize the date of our conference, March 24th, conflicts with another important event in our city: The March for Our Lives Chicago. While we are unable to change the date of our event, we respect and support the decision of families who wish to participate in this movement. Having focused on fostering the future success of young girls, EYH Chicago wholeheartedly supports March for Our Lives’ work to increase safety for all children.

Sincerely, Organizing Committee of EYH Chicago
