The EYH Teen STEM Café is a program under the umbrella of Expanding Your Horizons, San Diego, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness, understanding, and excitement among young women about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). As it grows, the program will consist of regional “hubs,” starting first with a hub in Central San Diego and North County San Diego.
The program for young women in grades 10 – 12 is organized by teens, for teens, and capitalizes upon the rich EYH network of STEM working professionals. During the school year, students meet monthly at the Linda Vista YMCA where a female STEM professional discusses her background, education and career, and leads participants through a hands-on STEM activity. Our EYH Teen STEM Café is part of a proven network of programs funded by a National Science Foundation grant to engage students in STEM topics prior to their start in college.
