SPC Host a Green Energy and Engineering Conference

A DAY OF GREEN: CELEBRATING ENGINEERING, ST. PHILIP’S COLLEGE HOSTS GREEN ENERGY AND ENGINEERING CONFERENCE

St. Philip’s College offered their Green Energy and Engineering Conference for aspiring and practicing members of the area’s math, science, technology and engineering community with hands on activities and mentoring experiences Feb. 23 at the college’s Center of Excellence for Science at 800 Quintana Road in the city’s Port San Antonio neighborhood (building marked as "4" on the interactive maphttp://alamo.edu/spc/imap-swc/).

St. Philip’s College’s contribution to National Engineering Week is traditionally this special event organized by its college employees and student clubs in partnership with like-minded institutions. This year the partners were School of Science and Technology, and the Harlandale, Northside and Southwest independent school districts.

During the event, a parking lot at the Southwest Campus was closed off for 65 middle and high school students to showcase their engineering projects to 125 fifth grade students. Rain changed the plan and all events went indoors. The college’s Cyber Tigers and Tiger 1 electric car student clubs provided demonstrations and promoted STEM careers. Demonstrations included two mini electric car constructions, basic electric motor design and control, self watering plants, hydroponics, wind energy, and power generation.

College and high school STEM students were present to motivate and inspire youth through their club projects and motivational speeches to begin considering STEM as a realistic college and career pathway.

A second phase of the event included college students engaging the fifth grade students through Building with Biology activities and showing how it may impact their everyday lives. The youth created a take-home product using Synthetic Biology principles and had the responsibility of being a “genetic engineer” for a day.

“In working with the youth, we are seeking to inspire them by showing them exciting opportunities in green energy and engineering fields,” said Ruben Prieto STEM special projects coordinator at the college. “Our Green Energy and Engineering Day brings together the elements of youth, independent school districts and higher education programs to establish an educational route for students to identify, select and excel in STEM careers in San Antonio,” Prieto concluded.

Three Kids’ Choice Awards were presented to participants. One School of Science and Technology student earned first place and $500 for their Brain Computer Interface presentation, Southwest ISD Legacy received second place and $250 for their electric car, and Harlandale Early College High School received a $100 third place award for their self-watering plant design.
