Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP)

STEP (Science and Technology Entry Program) is a New York State Education Department effort which began in 1986 to encourage and prepare more historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged middle and high school students for entry into scientific, technical, health, and health related professions, including many areas where licensure is required. The program at Stony Brook offers enrichment experiences through the exposure to the University's rich academic resources.

Through STEP, middle and high school students are offered academic enrichment, tutoring, supportive counseling, laboratory experiences, and opportunities to explore scientific research. Highlights of the program include a network of STEP clubs and advisors at participating schools and a residential summer program at the Stony Brook University campus. In addition, in the Fall and Spring, STEP offers a SAT preparation course, courses for college credit, and internship opportunities.

STEP is sponsored by the New York State Education Department
