7th Annual CORE4 STEM Program

 

What is CORE4?

CORE4 STEM Program is a three-day celebration of education and career opportunities in “STEM” –science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. CORE4’s mission is to stimulate students’ interest in the sciences and lead them to discoveries about their own potential in these areas and provides immersion in the excitement, surprise, and fun inherent in the sciences. The CORE4 Expo brings students, parents, and educators together with high-profile STEM professionals, corporations, government agencies, universities, and colleges. 

What will volunteers be doing?

CORE4 Volunteers will help us in variety of ways such as greeting attendees, help with registration & check-in, directing students to designated locations, managing the three major breakout areas, assisting the photographer, answering attendee questions, help with getting students to restrooms, handing out snacks, transitioning students between the three major breakout areas, and directing exhibitors to respective booth areas. Volunteers will be designated to locations upon arrival. 

 

Program history & background:

 San Antonio has an important gap to fill in the workforce areas of science, technology, engineer, and mathematics (STEM). Hispanics make up 20 percent of the nation’s youth population, yet only 2 percent of the STEM workforce is Hispanic, according to recent data from the U.S. Dept. of Education. Nationally, only 12% of Hispanics in 2009, graduated with a 2-year degree in STEM and only 8% graduated with a 4-year degree in STEM. In a city that is the up-and-coming leader in cybersecurity, military STEM careers,and other STEM-focused workforce needs, one thing is certain: we need change.

For six years, the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has hosted the largest STEM Conference in San Antonio: the Annual CORE4 STEM Program. Now in its 7th year, this Program is a great effort to inspire our young San Antonio students to explore future careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. This year’s CORE4 STEM Program will be held on November 1-5, 2016 during “San Antonio STEM Week,” another tradition initiated by the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in
partnership with the City of San Antonio.

The 7th Annual CORE4 STEM Program Program consists of a Latina Day (all girls), Latino Day (all boys), and Family Day where students are joined by their parents and younger siblings on a college campus, often for the first time. This enlightening Program will bring together more than 5,000 middle school
students from five inner-city school districts to experience hands-on, interactive ways to enhance their educational attainment in STEM. The majority of the students come from South San, Harlandale, Southwest, Edgewood, and San Antonio Independent School Districts, the districts with the most significant educational attainment issues.

The students invited to the Program are those in need of the greatest STEM push. These students will become San Antonio’s future workforce and determine the future economic success of this region and our nation. This unique Program involves local San Antonio corporations, businesses, governmental agencies, and institutions of higher-education. This presents a personal opportunity for students to see the many different types of STEM opportunities and careers that are available to them in the future.
