Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics Conferences for Girls in Grades 7-12 are designed to nurture girls' interest in science and math courses and to encourage them to consider science and math-based career options such as engineering, computer science and physical science. EECS women annually present a hands-on workshop at the Mills College EYH Conference, which attracts 500 girls for a day of encouragement to study science and mathematics.
