UNF's Society of Women Engineers and Expanding Your Horizons
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) team is partnering with Vistakon, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Research and Development group for the upcoming Expanding Your Horizons North Florida (EYH) conference to be held on 11 February 2012 at the University Center. The Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) conference is designed for 6th to 8th graders to learn more about careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This day-long event will include hands-on activities and give the girls a chance to meet STEM role models. Sign-ups for the conference will begin on 01 December 2011. Find out more about EYH by going to the National EYH website and watch a video of girls enjoying an EYH event. Last year's event was a huge success and the team is looking to reach out to approximately 200 girls next year. Anyone interested in volunteering on that day please contact Kathie Carswell, School of Engineering Outreach Coordinator or Stefka Petkova, Section President, SWE UNF (stefka.petkova[at]swe.org).
