Women of Water has signed up to participate in an event that helps to inspire girls to recognize their potential and pursue opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) is a conference for girls 6th through 10th grade. This day-long event will include hands-on activities in 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 of this event is to motivate girls to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st Century challenges.

WOW Presentation: “Water Works” – When you take a shower or drink a glass of water, do you wonder where your water comes from of where it goes when it runs down the drain or down the sidewalk or roadway? Learn about how environmental engineers help to supply clean drinking water to your community and also clean up dirty water before it is returned to the environment. Explore how different materials catch different waste particles to clean up your water. Hands-on demonstration included.
