The annual Expanding Your Horizons Conference held at the Cooperative Middle School in Stratham, N.H., welcomes middle-school girls and their parents to investigate careers and hear from professionals about opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math. "The purpose of this is to help promote STEM, ... engagement and learning for young girls before they get to high school and choose their courses," said Vicki Geis, who works with the conference sponsor, the Exeter Area Greater Federation of Women's Clubs, adding that the longer-term goal is to close the gender gap in STEM jobs.
