Dear Mr. DeVoe,
I am one of the Initial Contacts co-chair for Expanding Your Horizons, an annual conference that provides an opportunity for girls grades 7-9 and their parents to engage in educational activities and explore careers in math, science, and engineering. The conference will be held at Cornell University on Saturday, April 16, 2011. Girls will participate in three hands-on workshops, attend a key-note lecture by an outstanding female professor, and meet role models in the sciences. Registration for EYH begins February 22. For more information, please feel free to email me or to visit our website, www.ccmr.cornell.edu/eyh
We have mailed out brochures (see attached) to your school, but we are following up with other means of communication to maximize the number of girls who can take advantage of this amazing opportunity. I hope that you can help spread the word to your colleagues and encourage your students to attend!
