MATH SCIENCE NETWORK
June 1, 2010
I have been involved with the EYH organization for more than 30 years,both at the national and at the local level. The 1-day conferences held at approximately 100 different sites reaches many thousands of middle and high school girls each year. The girls are introduced to STEM careers that they might never have otherwise heard about, and they discover that math and science can be interesting, challenging, and fun. The EYH Network has an enormous impact and does this with a very limited budget. Many volunteers all over the country work to make these conferences successful.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
by working as a Board member and by helping to organize a local conference. The conference day is very exciting both for the girls and the workshop leaders and for the planning committee members. I look forward to this every year.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
The staff and volunteers are amazingly dedicated and hard working.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
support all the conferences and also provide extension programs for the girls.
