We need your support in planning the Tri-Valley Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics Conference.

You can help by volunteering! Please let us know where you would like to help and provide the information requested.

If you have any questions, contact the Wokshop Coordinators:

Meg Lawler Fratanduono (925) 423-2036

During a workshop, you will be expected to:

  • briefly discuss background information about yourself
    (e.g. your education, how you got into your profession, what you do on the job, etc.)
  • provide a hands-on experience or activity related to your job or profession

Submit by: No later than January 8, 2018 (Be sure to make yourself a copy.) Please let us know as soon as possible if you can participate. The earlier we have the title and description the better.

We have common school supplies available; if you have more specific supply needs, please purchase the items. We will make every attempt to reimburse for supplies, but please be conscious of price since our budget is limited.

* A two - three sentence paragraph describing your workshop

Size Preference

We would appreciate it if you could accommodate about 20 girls

There Are Two Workshops (90 Minutes Each)

It is much easier if you can do both, but if your schedule only allows for one let us know. Please make every attempt to fill the entire time slot so the girls aren’t left with a time gap


Lunch will be served between 11:00 am and 1:00 p.m. Please indicate how many Workshop Leaders and Co-Leaders will be staying for lunch

T-shirt Sizes

How Many T-shirt's? S, M, L, XL, XXL


Please provide the names of your co-leaders so we may provide them with appropriate name tags

Extra Volunteers

Will you need any extra volunteers in your workshop?

Room/Facility Requirements

We recommend that you bring as much as possible of your own equipment. Most of the rooms are classrooms; however, we have access to a few laboratory rooms. Please let us know if a specific type of room would work best for you.

Room Set Up

Please use this space to describe details of your ideal room set up. How do you want the tables and chairs organized? Do you need open space? Do you want the tables covered?
