Schuylkill Technology Center to Host Open Houses at North and South Campuses Wednesday Evening

The Schuylkill Technology Center will host an Open House on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 from 6-8pm at both the North and South Campuses. 


The theme for this event is an “STC Skills Run.”   Prospective students will earn a playing card upon completion of a hands-on skill within each program of study.  Participants who build a full hand, will receive a prize and be entered into a drawing to win wireless earbuds. The types of tasks in which students will engage, include: replacing spark plugs, interpreting blood pressures, creating acrylic tiles, utilizing the diesel trainer, pipefitting, paraffin hand wax, masking collision vehicle, fingerprinting, logo design branding, and milling. “This is a great opportunity for students to get a glimpse at the types of tasks they might do if they enrolled in STC as well as learn more about the programs of study and meet our faculty,” said Shannon Brennan, STC Director.

During the Open House, parents will have a chance to learn more about career pathways from some industry partners; including: Hexcel, Reynolds, Bob Weaver Chevrolet, Genesis Schuylkill Center, AutoZone Distribution Center, Reading Foundry, IBEW Local 743, The Edge (Salon) Penn State University, Bloomsburg, Dr. Kimmel,   Bricklayers Union, and the Pipefitter’s Union. “The industry partnerships are an invaluable resource in helping parents see where an educational experience from STC can lead,” said T.J. Fitzpatrick, Cooperative Education Coordinator.

The Grille at the South Campus and The Restaurant at the North Campus, which are restaurants operated by the STC Culinary Programs, will be open for business during the Open House.  For more information, please contact Shannon Brennan at (570) 544-4748 ext. 3115.

The event is open to current students, prospective future students, parents and families.
