EYH Conference

EXETER —The Exeter Area General Federation of Women’s Clubs is once again proud to offer the FREE NH Seacoast Expanding Your Horizon’s in Science and Mathematics (EYH) Conference. The Exeter Area GFWC is a non-profit service organization dedicated to community improvement for over fifty years. This is the club’s 8th year offering this event. The EYH Network is a non-profit membership organization of educators, scientists, mathematicians, parents, community leaders, and government and corporate representatives.

The mission is to encourage young women to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. Through Expanding Your Horizons (EYH) Network programs, they provide STEM role models and hands-on activities for 6th-8th grade girls. The ultimate goal is to motivate girls to become innovative and creative thinkers ready to meet 21st Century challenges. Some of the role models they may encounter are a biochemist, an aeronautical engineer, a robotics engineer and a mathematics professor.

Thanks to the New Outlook Teen Center in Exeter, they are also able to offer an Adult Program at the conference this year. This program is open to any parents, guardians, teachers, guidance counselors and the like who are interested in what this conference has to offer the young women in their lives. The adult program will run all day, sharing the girls opening and closing sessions as well as having its own set of courses geared to the adults. The courses will include: “Girls in the Media” (with a viewing of the documentary film Miss Representation), “Funding Your Daughter’s Education ‘Parent to Parent’ and “Making it Work.”

This is a free conference being held on Sat., May 4, from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. in Stratham at the Cooperative Middle School. The registration deadline is April 19. Registration for the girls is open to the first 220 who sign up and it is on a first come/first served basis. Typically, the conference fills up for the girls in the first two weeks! Please do not delay in registering! To register for both the EYH conference for the girls and the Adult Program, visit their website at between Fri., March 22 and Fri., April 19.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
