Women are needed to volunteer as group guides for attendees of the 19th annual Expanding Your Horizons conference, which will be held Friday, Oct. 5, at S&T. The conference introduces seventh- and eighth-grade girls to careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. The event brings more than 450 Missouri students to campus.

Each workshop will be conducted two times, at 10:10-11 a.m. and 11:10 a.m.-noon, with 12-18 students per session. All volunteers are invited to enjoy a complimentary lunch.

Female faculty, staff, students and community members are encouraged to volunteer to help the student groups navigate the campus.
