What's Happening

EYH Logo

Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) in Albuquerque is a conference for Laguna Middle School girls 5th-9th grade. The event will include hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). At the conference, girls will get a chance to meet STEM role models and learn more about careers in those fields. The ultimate goal is to motivate girls to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st Century challenges. Ms. Harris asked 18 young ladies from her classes if they were interested in attending and ALL 18 girls were excited and replied "Yes."

Written permission and support has been received from their parents. The girls are now registered and set to go. Workshop sessions LMS girls have picked to attend are:
