All Licking Junior High eighth grade girls went to Expanding Your Horizons on the campus of Missouri S&T on November 15.
EYH is a one-day conference on the campus of Missouri S&T in Rolla, Mo. It is an annual youth conference for 7th and 8th grade girls. Through this conference, students experience the world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Hands-on workshops were led by S&T faculty, alumni and guest experts and introduced students to future career possibilities.
During the day students learned about career opportunities for women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, discovered how interesting and fun math and science can be, met other young women interested in science and math and formed personal contacts with women working in traditionally male occupations.
We want to send a huge thank you to Georgia Pacific of Cuba for donating $750 for our students to attend. Thank you for allowing our students to have this opportunity; we appreciate your generosity.
