EYH Set for Sept. 25 on MTSU Campus
(MURFREESBORO) – Organizers have chosen Saturday, Sept. 25, as the date for this fall’s 14th annual Expanding Your Horizons in Math and Science.
Often held in late October, EYH’s 2010 date was moved earlier so it would not conflict with any MTSU home football games, said Director Judith Iriarte-Gross, a professor in the chemistry department.
EYH conferences nurture girls’ interests in science and math courses, encouraging them to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
Same-day conferences are held at MTSU for girls in grades five through eight and girls in ninth through 12th grades. Girls from across the region are welcome to attend EYH, which now can be found on Facebook at www. facebook.com/mtsu.eyh.
With three Nobel Prize winners among its alumni and former faculty, Middle Tennessee State University confers master’s degrees in 10 areas, the Specialist in Education degree, the Doctor of Arts degree and the Doctor of Philosophy degree. MTSU is ranked among the top 100 public universities in the nation in the Forbes “America’s Best Colleges” 2009 survey.
