Cleveland STEP

Thank you for visiting Cleveland STEP (Student Technical Enrichment Program)! Applications for our 2018 - 2019 class are now available. Please scroll down to the Future Cleveland STEP student section. Since 1994, Cleveland STEP has been giving students in the 6th through 9th grades the opportunity to visit premier institutions, interact with professionals in the field, meet new friends and work together performing exciting experiments that make science, technology, engineering, and math come alive.

We provide experiences and educational outreach so students may envision themselves in STEM careers. We encourage students to pursue a career in STEM, and we develop a linkage between students and educational institutions, businesses, industry and the community. 

This year’s class will explore the world of science, technology, engineering, and math with these premier institutions. Click on a photo below to view a photo blog of one of our sessions. Check back monthly to see where we’ve been this month!
