Expanding Your Horizons STEM for Girls event accepting applications for presenters and group leaders
Applications are now open for presenters and group leaders for Expanding Your Horizons on Saturday, April 18, 2020.
This one-day conference at MSU-Bozeman includes hands-on workshops in the fields of science, technology, math and engineering (STEM) for girls in grades 6, 7, and 8. The event generally serves around 240 to 280 girls from all across Montana.
Presenters are MSU faculty, graduate students or community members who share their field of study via 40-minute interactive workshops for small groups of girls. Ideally, presenters will deliver their workshop four times, although morning-only and afternoon-only schedules may be available.
Group leaders are MSU women students who spend the day with a group of girls, escorting them around MSU, doing team building exercises, and sharing their own personal educational journey. Group leaders do not have to be studying a STEM field but should encourage girls to "expand their horizons" and consider a wide variety of career and college options. Group leader commitment is 7:30a.m. to 4:00p.m.
Training for both roles is available. Breakfast and lunch are provided, along with the rewarding opportunity to meet and inspire an amazing group of girls!
