STEM Hands-on Saturday at SPC 2017 Women Breaking Through Conference Oct. 14

St. Philip's College promotes future economic security for local young women by registering 150 teenaged females grades 8–12 for mentoring and hands-on STEM activities in the college’s free 2017 Women Breaking Through Conference Oct. 14 from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. in the Center of Excellence for Mathematics in Building 1 at the college's Southwest Campus on 800 Quintana Road. Conference registration is available at the center web page or at Eventbrite. For information, contact center staff member Stacie Coy-Mahula at (1–210) 486–7119, text STEM to 55000, or contact Maria Rodriguez, 2017 conference organizer and center director at (1–210) 486–7123 or mrodriguez108@alamo.edu.

Established in 2011 as an annual St. Philip’s College Saturday program, the conference is designed for women by women to instill confidence and awareness women can leverage to ensure their fair share of the fastest growing career pathways in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, said Rodriguez. While young women will engage in mini hands-on activities that involve STEM concepts and principles in the labs of the college, various female STEM experts will share how a balanced personal and academic plan can lead toward becoming a professional in fields young women dream of entering. The highlights of the 2017 conference are workshops led by professional women in the STEM fields, said Rodriguez. The workshops will allow the girls to explore a bevy of science fields that will reward them in their futures.

“We hope this experience will inspire the young ladies to close the gender gap by pursuing a degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics and making a career out of it,” Rodriguez said. “Our goal for the conference is to encourage underrepresented and at-risk young ladies to STEM careers by providing women in the STEM profession to present and share their own journeys.”

A few of the many resources for this program traditionally include the college's 45,000-square-foot centers of excellence in science and math, an alternative energy lab and an adjacent 10,000 square-foot library to support student and faculty needs. Those facilities were built through federal funding to increase the flow of two–year college graduates transferring to four–year universities for science and related degrees that lead to high–pay jobs in the green economy and biotechnology/bio-energy.
