Secondary Students Enjoy STEM-ulate: Science Showcase

Elementary students wearing blue surgical gloves giggled with excitement as they squeezed pig lungs during SAC’s second annual Spring STEM-ulate: Science Showcase. The inflatable lungs exhibit was displayed at an anatomy booth during the showcase. Elementary students from the talented and gifted program at Will Rogers Elementary School had a chance to visit the showcase and enjoy the many things it offered. They were one of the groups who made the trek to SAC to participate. STEM students from Somerset High School’s GEAR Up (Gaining Early College Awareness and Readiness) program spent the afternoon at the showcase.

To encourage participation, students were asked to fill out a passport that had a section representing each booth. After visiting the booth, they had the passport stamped and submitted them for prizes. Some of the comments from the passports included “Thanks for the exhibits. They were great,” “I love science,” “Informational,” Awesome,” “Helpful,” “Interesting” and “Fun.”

The showcase is designed to engage students in the sciences on campus, prepare them to transfer to four-year institutions and introduce them to community partners. This is accomplished by inviting groups like San Antonio Botanical Gardens, SAWS, U.S. Air Force Engineering, Edwards Aquifer and the National Weather Service to participate in the showcase with interactive activities. Some of the four-year institutions that participated include Sul Ross State University, UTSA, Our Lady of the Lake University and Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Many of the universities had more than one department represented at the event. The showcase is the result of participation from 15 STEM faculty, STEM clubs, the MESA Center, staff and 5075 student volunteers.

The success of the showcase is made in part through partnerships with community sponsors like H-E-B, Taco Cabana, Jason’s Deli and the Spurs, who together help make the event successful for the benefit of SAC, and San Antonio, students.

STEM-ulate is offered during the fall and spring semesters. The showcase is an Adelanter Tejas, Title V project, a five-year U.S. Department of Education grant. Adelante Tejas, a partnerships between SAC and Sul Ross, aims to increase enrollment, retention, transfer and graduation rates in the sciences at both campuses.
