Brighter Horizons Math, Science and Technology Conference
will take place on Saturday, March 12th, 2016
at California Lutheran University, 60 West Olsen Rd, Thousand Oaks, CA
Brighter Horizons is presented by the AAUW (formerly American Association of University Women) Thousand Oak and Simi Valley Branches in cooperation with Camarillo and Ventura County Branches and in partnership with the City of Thousand Oaks and California Lutheran University.
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), Astronomy, Veterinary Medicine, Chemistry and Biochemistry for example.
In March 2014 we had a very successful Conference with every seat full. Students came in from some distances but most from Ventura County. Fun activities in workshops included making a take-home catapult , solving a crime, holding a walking stick (insect), learning about layers of the sun, touching a brain....the students had a great time. Parents were involved also in learning about finding the right college, tech jobs of the future and guiding their child to their true north.
Come join us on March 12th, 2016 for a great morning of learning and fun!
