Organizers of a conference at Montana State University are seeking female professionals who can present and serve as role models for middle school-aged girls interested in science and math careers.

The annual conference, called Expanding Your Horizons, takes place Saturday, April 30, on the MSU campus. More than 200 girls from throughout Montana will participate in science- and math-related activities ranging from robots to fossils to personal finance.

Volunteers who would like to share their expertise and enthusiasm in math, science, engineering and technology develop a 40-minute workshop topic and hands-on activity. Training is offered for new presenters. The event is designed to expose young women to exciting math and science careers and encourage them to pursue math and science courses in high school and college.

Businesses and organizations who are interested in financial or in-kind sponsorships are also encouraged to participate.

EYH is a national program that, since 1992, is hosted locally by MSU's Extended University outreach program.
