Annual 'Expanding Your Horizons' conference moves to new location at Las Positas College
The daylong event is held for girls, grades 6-9, from Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon and Sunol school districts to increase interest and foster awareness of careers in math and science. This year's theme is "Get Connected With Your Future." At the conference, girls will participate in hands-on workshops, a special group activity and a career fair. The conference also provides young women opportunities to meet and interact with positive role models who are actively engaged in math- and science-related careers.
For parents, there is a two-and-a-half hour workshop on college planning, academic requirements, financial aid and transferring to a four-year university. Registration is required. Parents may register online or by mailing in the registration form.
