Please join us on November 5, 2011 for our first annual EYH “Bridge to College Success” Conference! EYH targets pre-teen and teenage students in response to research showing that students often disengage from science, math and technology at this age. While students show academic proficiency in these content areas, they often opt out of participating in them. EYH is designed to engage students in an interactive way while nourishing their interest and intellect, giving them confidence in using science, math and technology in real-world applications.
The first annual EYH Conference for high school students features workshops and career panels intended to excite them about science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine. WISE needs people to serve as volunteers, mentors for the day, workshop leaders, and career panelists. This is a great opportunity to work with students!
The conference starts at 8 am and lasts until about 4:30-5pm. We will be providing lunch for the students as well. The day will be broken down into 2 workshops in the morning, lunch, a keynote speaker, then onto a career panel where the youth will be able to ask questions about the different career opportunities in the STEM fields, our concluding program includes speakers from financial aid, admissions, and academic counseling from the University of Arizona and Pima Community College. After all of these exciting festivities, we will have a closing ceremony. But hurry and grab your students a spot today because once we reach 300 attendees, registration will close.
