This past Saturday (Apr. 18), Notre Dame hosted the 18th annual Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) career conference for middle school girls that focused on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Throughout the day, attendees met female role models working in STEM fields and learned about careers in those fields. The main goal of the conference is to attract more young females to STEM careers and help them realize that they have the potential to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st century challenges.

This year’s event welcomed over 270 participants from Indiana, Michigan, and Illinois. The conference opened with an informational session on attending college and was followed by workshops on a variety of topics such as animal science, business, chemistry, and engineering. Each student attended three workshops of their choice and many presenters came as far as Chicago.
