We would like to invite you to participate as a workshop leader in the 33nd Annual Expanding Your Horizons Conference for 7th-9th grade girls to be held on Saturday, April 14, 2012.

Presenters for the workshops are usually women from area businesses and professions and from the three area colleges in the fields of science, math and engineering. Presenters donate their time in order to provide the workshop participants with an interactive, hands-on look at careers. Even if your career doesn’t directly involve math and science, you probably needed those courses to pursue your career path.

Think about what you do on your job or in your classroom. Is there some activity that you could modify for a hands-on activity that could be done by a group of very enthusiastic 7th-9th grade girls? We need people like you to lead hands-on workshops for these young girls. We expect over 600 young girls to apply for this conference; in some years we have had to turn away some of those who applied because we did not have enough workshops available. This is a great mentoring program for these girls. You can view past years workshops by visiting http://www.eyh.ndsu.nodak.edu/?page_id=31
