Please join in this excellent opportunity to make transformational connections with young women throughout the region!

We would like to invite you to participate as a workshop leader in the 37th Annual Expanding Your Horizons Conference for 7th-9th grade girls to be held on Saturday, April 9, 2016.

Area women (and men with female helpers) volunteer their time to provide a day full of interactive, hands-on workshops that increase young women’s interest in mathematics and science and foster awareness of career opportunities for women in mathematics and science-related fields and occupations that may have been traditionally male dominated. Whether you are a researcher, executive, or professor, we are asking women from area business and colleges to help us show young girls what careers are available to them. Even if your day—to-day responsibilities don’t directly involve math and science, that’s OK! You may have taken the courses to pursue your career path.

Think about what you do for your job or in your classroom. Is there something 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. With over 600 girls that apply to this program, we need as many presenters as we can get! In the past, we have had to turn girls away due to lack of presenters. Please consider offering a workshop for the 7th-9th grade girls.

If you would like to volunteer, please complete the workshop form attached by November 6, 2015, to Karen Murie, EYH Coordinator at NDSU, by email attachment (karen.murie@ndsu.edu) or fax (701-231-7016). If you would like more information about volunteering, please contact Karen Murie at karen.murie@ndsu.edu or 701-231-8638.
