Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics™

EYH 2017 was a great success this year.

This year 433 girls and 59 adults from all over Harris County and surrounding communities attended the conference.  The keynote speaker, Michele McNichol, Chief Executive Officer for the west region of the Wood Group Asset Life Cycle Solutions, was fantastic and gave the girls good advice for persevering to achieve their dreams and overcoming obstacles, and there were many excellent presentations by our volunteers, women in science, technology, engineering and math fields. Thank you to all of you who worked hard to make this event happen, especially the members of the EYH Steering Committee whose preparation made the day run so smoothly. It was a great way to celebrate our 25th year of putting on this conference.

The EYH Steering Committee will be gearing up for 2018 and is looking for volunteers who want to help the next generation of young women to enter science, technology, engineering and math careers. Now, more than ever, these girls need our support! We are looking for volunteers to serve on the Steering Committee. In addition, this year it will be especially important to increase our fundraising efforts. If you would like to help, please contact EYH 2018 chair Lilian Care at tigermoon1@sbcglobal.net.
