EYH, a hands-on math and science event, helps girls investigate math and science careers, according to Dr. Judith Iriarte-Gross, director of both EYH and MTSU’s WISTEM, or Women in STEM, Center.
Iriarte-Gross added that EYH gives participants opportunities to talk with women in science and math careers and attend similar conferences with other girls. STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Places are available for up to 275 middle school girls and up to 75 high school girls to attend the event, Iriarte-Gross said.
