4. Why is there a need for special conferences just for girls?

The 2000 Congressional Commission on the Advancement of Women and Minorities in Science, Engineering and Technology Development (CAWMSET) stated, "Today's U.S. economy depends more than ever on the talents of skilled, high-tech workers. To sustain America's preeminence we must take drastic steps to change the way we develop our workforce. An increasingly large proportion of the workforce consists of women, underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities- groups not well represented in science, engineering and technology (SET) fields." Furthermore, our whole nation profits when women have the same opportunities as their male counterparts.

 

5. What type of workshops are held?

At EYH conferences girls participate in engaging and challenging hands-on math, science and engineering activities led by women mathematicians, scientists, engineers and technology specialists. Through these career workshops, young women learn that studying math, technology, and science can be fun. They participate in investigations related to a variety of STEM careers and learn about the importance of studying as much math, science, and technology as possible in high school. By using local volunteers to lead workshops, girls meet with mathematicians, engineers and scientists who live and work in their own communities, who serve as role models at the conference, and who may serve as possible mentors in the future.

 

6. When does registration open?

Conference and workshop registration opens on February 1st, 2016. Space is limited and the conference fills up quickly so we encourage you to register early. All registrations are due by April 1st, 2016.

 

7. How do I register my daughter(s) for the conference?

Registration is available by visiting the registration page. Once you submit your registration, you will be redirected to secure PayPal to process the $30 registration fee using any one of the major credit cards.

 

8. What if we cannot afford the registration fee?

Scholarships are available. Please request on the registration form.
