Expanding Your Horizons
A Mathematics, Science, Engineering & Technology Conference
for Young Women in Grades 4 - 10 who attend Tulare County schools

Saturday, November 5, 2016
College of the Sequoias
915 S. Mooney Blvd., Visalia




Join us for a Fun and Informative Day!
  • Discover how interesting and fun math and science can be.
  • Learn about career opportunities for women in mathematics, science, engineering and technology.
  • Form personal contacts with women working in occupations traditionally held by men.
  • Meet other young women interested in science and math.
The conference begins with a group welcome and keynote address. The rest of the day is spent attending workshops presented by women whose careers involve mathematics, science, engineering or technology. These hands-on seminars provide an opportunity for young women to experiment in specific areas of interest, such as engineering or chemistry. Each participant will attend three workshops.

Since 2000, the Tulare County Office of Education has been a member of the Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Network which encourages the development of conferences to nurture girls' interest in science and math courses and to encourage them to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Currently, Expanding Your Horizons conferences are held in 31 states and in Europe and Asia. In 2010, the EYH Network received the prestigious National Science Board (NSB) Public Service Award as an organization that has made significant contributions and impact in public understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
