Education Conference for Middle School Girls

On October 8th, Sacramento State University will be holding the "Expanding Your Horizons" conference. The conference is aimed at getting middle school girls interested in math, science, engineering, and technology.  The keynote speaker is software manufacturer Synergex International president Michele Wong.  Workshops are diverse, and include topics like "Apply and Fly," "Blood Solutions," "My Car Will Run on That?," and "Strawberry Short-Cut to DNA."

The cost is $25, which includes lunch.  There are workshops for parents as well, also costing $25 with lunch included.  The conference sells out quickly, and is limited to 340 students.  For more information and to register, visit the Expanding Your Horizons Conference site.
