[527] Registration begins for Oct. 22 math-science event for girls at MTSU

MURFREESBORO — Registration has begun for the 20th annual Expanding Your Horizons in Math and Science at MTSU, and middle school and high school girls should act early to secure their place.

Expanding Your Horizons, or EYH, will be held from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, on campus. The registration fee is $20. The deadline to register is Thursday, Aug. 25, or when maximum capacity has been reached. Scholarship assistance is available.

To register, go to and click on “EYH” and then “Registration.” A link for two parent or guardian release forms is included on the registration page.

Expanding Your Horizons is a hands-on math and science event to help girls consider careers in these fields as well as engineering and technology. EYH gives girls opportunities to talk with women in STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — and attend this type of conference with other girls.

Up to 250 middle school girls and up to 100 high school girls are welcome to attend the event.

A keynote speaker will be announced at a later date.

“Our committee is excited about our 20th anniversary of EYH,” said Dr. Judith Iriarte-Gross, director of both EYH and the MTSU Women in STEM (WISTEM) Center. “We always have outstanding workshops and workshop leaders, and this year is no exception.”
