EYH Outreach Event to be held on Saturday, April 9   http://wvu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ebb9F7APDs4CLwp 

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH): EYH is an annual outreach event for middle school girls coordinated by the Association for Women in Science (AWIS). Each spring, WV AWIS travels to a different location across the state to bring hands-on experiments to girls in 6th-9th grade. The 2016 event will be Saturday, April 9th at the WVU Institute of Technology in Montgomery, WV. The event pairs middle school girls with local professionals, researchers, academics, and students who’ve made science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) their career and demonstrates the creative and fun side of these fields. The event runs from 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM, however workshop leaders can opt to work for a portion of the day (if you prefer either morning or afternoon workshops, please indicate in the “Special Needs” section).
