Expanding Your Horizons seeks volunteers for Oct. 15

Expanding Your Horizons is an annual conference at the University of Maine dedicated to inspiring girls to recognize their potential and pursue opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math. 

This year, more than 300 middle school girls will come to UMaine on Tuesday, Oct. 15 for presentations, workshops and other hands-on STEM activities with scientists from UMaine and other institutions. 

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension, which sponsors the event, is welcoming volunteers to help guide the groups and answer any questions they might have about college. Faculty, staff, and undergraduate and graduate students can register to volunteer from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. 

Registration is requested by the end of the day Wednesday, Oct. 9, and is online. For more information, contact Laura Wilson at laura.wilson@maine.edu.
