Students meet with women who have found satisfying careers in law, mathematics, engineering, computing, medicine, and other non-traditional technical careers. Students explore these career opportunities in hands-on, career-related workshops. They learn what jobs are available, what preparation and training they require, and how successful women are excelling in mathematics and science-related fields today!

Each student attends three sessions. A female professional leads each workshop and shares an aspect of her technical field. Additionally, she will share what education and skills are required to perform her job, what she does at her job, and why she chose her particular career. All sessions include opportunities for questions and answers.

An adult program is provided for adults who wish to attend EYH. Advanced registration and $5 fee is required to participate in the adult program. J
