Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a workshop for young women in middle school. This day-long event will include hands-on activities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Student participants get a chance to engage in hands on STEM activities, meet STEM role models, and learn more about careers in those fields. Our ultimate goal is to motivate young women in North Florida to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st Century challenges.
Techbridge Girls and Expanding Your Horizons North Florida are deeply committed to empowering girls* from low-income communities to achieve economic mobility through high-quality STEM experiences. And we are equally committed to protecting the safety and well-being of our program participants, volunteers, event attendees, and other community members. As a critical support system for our girls during the COVID-19 crisis, Techbridge Girls is requiring that all EYH conferences be switched from in-person to virtual through the remainder of 2020 to ensure that we continue creating pathways for girls from low-income communities to persist to STEM careers during a time when they are even more deeply at risk of being left behind. If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us.
*“Girls” refers to gender-expansive youth (cis girls, trans girls, non-binary youth, gender non-conforming youth, gender queer youth and any girl-identified youth).
