Campaign has ended.


For over 25 years, Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) has provided hands-on workshops in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to thousands of local girls in grades 5 thru 8. Students from Silver City and surrounding areas attended a full day of fun activities on the WNMU campus, where female professionals and college students shared their adventures in STEM. Girls, and their parents and teachers, consistently rate EYH as an excellent, often life-changing, experience.

This year, due to concerns about safety for all students and staffers during the Covid pandemic, we are providing “EYH in a Box” directly to the several hundred girls who registered. The boxes include everything necessary to explore six FUN science experiments at home. As always, there is no cost to participate in the program.

Silver City EYH is one of the largest and oldest programs of its kind in New Mexico. Organization and staffing of the program is 100% volunteer. Your donation will help us continue to offer great introductory STEM experiences to local girls, and give them a chance to meet and learn from female professionals who can serve as educational and career role models.
