About Expanding Your Horizons

The University of Central Florida’s College of Engineering and Computer Science proudly presents the Expanding Your Horizons Conference. The Conference will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2012 on the UCF campus. Two hundred girls, grades 6-8, will be participating in the conference.

The UCF Expanding Your Horizons Program is aimed at introducing Central Florida girls to exciting careers in Science, Math and Engineering fields.

With the gracious support of women engineers in our community and UCF students, participants will experience a taste of college life during their visit to the Harris Engineering Center on the UCF Campus, hear about exciting opportunities for women in engineering, and participate in “hands-on” science and math activities! Mad Science will entertain you with Air Blast! and Katie Kelly will present Making the Magic .

While the girls are in workshops, parents are invited to stay and learn, too. Registered adults will attend simultaneous workshops that tell you “Why” your daughters should choose to study math, science, and engineering and “How” you can help prepare them. Siblings are not allowed to attend the parent presentations, so please plan accordingly.
