Expanding Your Horizons is a conference for middle school girls to expose them to various careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Co-sponsored by AAUW, the Ingenuity Center at UT Tyler, and the Omicron chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, the program began in Tyler in 1992 and is still going strong.
Through Expanding Your Horizons Network programs, we provide adult female role models who work in STEM professions who present short, hands-on workshops for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls. Our ultimate goal is to motivate girls to become innovative and creative thinkers, ready to meet 21st century challenges.
The Tyler branch presents a $1000 award to one lucky school to help with their science and math curriculum.
