Brighter Horizons Math, Science and Technology Conference
will take place on Saturday, March 12th, 2016

Brighter Horizons is presented by the AAUW (formerly American Association of University Women) Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley and Camarillo Branches and sponsored by the City of Thousand Oaks, California Lutheran University and Amgen Foundation.

Registration is OPEN.
All boys and girls in 5th to 9th grades are invited to attend.

Brighter Horizons Conference nurtures students' interests in math and science related subjects to encourage them to consider careers in technological fields. Students in 5th to 9th grades are invited to choose 3 different workshops each led by a woman who is a professional working in the subject field. Workshops include hands-on activities that demonstrate tasks related to the subject and that, hopefully, spark an interest in the student. Workshop topics have included Forensic Sciences, Entomology (study of insects), Veterinary Medicine, Chemistry and Biochemistry for example.
