Expanding Your Horizons

Science can be a blast

National statistics show a great need for better comprehension of the STEM areas (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), and we believe that starts at a young age. One way we participate in fostering STEM success is through Expanding Your Horizons.

Young women, grades 6-8, are invited to participate in Expanding Your Horizons to encourage interest in science and math through hands-on experiments.

Expanding Your Horizons programs are held in more than 30 states as well as Europe and Asia, and the program was introduced on the Missouri State University campus in 1994.
