Attention 6th-8th Grade Girls: STEM Conference

Expanding Your Horizons is a volunteer-based organization that hosts an annual one-day STEM conference to excite and inspire young girls from 6th-8th grade to pursue STEM careers. This year, we are happy to announce that our annual Chicago conference will take place at the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) on Saturday, March 25th, 2023 from 9am-3pm.

At our conference, students will work with women scientists from all over Chicago and engage in workshops that cover topics from math, physics, biomedical engineering and so much more. The goal is to introduce the girls to some STEM careers and show them that STEM is fun! 

As a Chicago based volunteer organization, it is our goal to reach girls from schools who may not have the funding to provide their students with these types of interactive STEM experiences. It would mean a great deal to us if you could share this information with your students and encourage girls to register for this event. 

Registration for the conference is open NOW for public school students in the Chicago area. Registration for private school students will open on February 27th. The last day to register will be March 11th. For more information, please visit our website at
