What is EYH?

EYH is a national program that encourages young women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Our ultimate goal is to motivate girls to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st Century challenges.

Each year, 250 girls in grades 6-8 come to the MSU campus from throughout Montana to meet positive role models and explore career options. We hope you will join us.

What Does EYH Do?

  • Increases young women's awareness of college and career opportunities in mathematics, science, technology and engineering through interesting hands-on experiences.
  • Provides young women with the opportunity to meet and interact with positive role models who are active in math, science, engineering, technology and related careers.
  • Helps you give something back. Through EYH, many MSU faculty, students and community members reach out to the larger community.
  • Allows young women to spend the day with female undergraduate students and discuss common interests and accomplishments.
  • Is an inspiring experience with old and new friends.

Many volunteers return year after year, because EYH offer such a positive and rewarding opportunity to interact with young women. Additionally, many faculty report on EYH in their annual service and outreach activities.
