SPC STEM WEEK: CORE4 STEM, Merit Badge University---Volunteers Welcome

St. Philip's College hosts two major San Antonio STEM Week events of fun and career education knowledge building for young people and their families on the first weekend of November at the college on 1801 Martin Luther King Drive, and volunteers are welcome to register online to support the week where the college has served as an education partner since the program began.

The college begins its 2017 partnership in the citywide San Antonio STEM Week observance with the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce CORE4 STEM Family Day Program for up to 130 families Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with registration in the college’s G. J. Sutton Learning Center building and online registration becoming available later this month. The event includes hands-on opportunities for parents to experience some of what the college’s students experience every day online and on the campus, and might stimulate parents to enroll their children in the college’s Early College High School. In 2016, 80 families enrolled to attend hands-on STEM workshops and demonstrations to learn about career opportunities and pathways in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, according to Ruben S. Prieto, the college’s Community Outreach Coordinator. For convenience, organizers have arranged six different locations, including St. Philip’s College, so that families can find the campus closest to their home or their hearts. For event details, reach Prieto at 210-363-1231 or, or families can register online when the link becomes available later this month.

New-for-2017, all are welcome to volunteer with St. Philip’s College to support the chamber’s annual CORE4 STEM program that promotes STEM education for prospective college students. Volunteer with the college online through the chamber for opportunities available during CORE4 STEM Family Day Nov. 4 at SPC, along with CORE4 STEM Move In Day Nov. 6 in the Expo Hall of Freeman Coliseum, followed by Latina Day (Nov. 7) and Latino Day (Nov. 8) where college employees and students will be exhibiting, recruiting and giving back as volunteers at the Freeman Coliseum.

No matter where they serve, volunteers help the college and the chamber with greeting attendees, helping with registration and check-in, directing students to designated locations, managing three major breakout areas, assisting a photographer, answering attendee questions, helping with getting students to restrooms, handing out snacks, transitioning students between the breakout areas, and directing exhibitors to respective booth areas. Volunteers are designated to locations upon arrival, and their help is appreciated. Volunteer online with the chamber at For details on the college’s CORE4 Family Day program, contact Ruben S. Prieto, the college’s STEM Community Outreach Coordinator, at 210-486–7122,
