Student Testimonials

    
 

Aaron Booker, R.B. Chamberlin Middle School, Grade 8, 1st year

The Cleveland STEP program has been great for me so far. I enjoy going on field trips and learning about the technology that people use for their careers. I would recommend STEP to another student because any student interested in technology and engineering would enjoy the program and what it provides.

Aidan Booker, Dodge Intermediate School, Grade 6, 1st year

From this program, I've met new people and made new friends. I most enjoyed going on field trips, especially the one where I went to Washkewicz College of Engineering. I would absolutely recommend this program to another student.  The program is educational, you learn new things and you meet new people who share the same interests.

Keith Brown, Cleveland School of Arts, Grade 8, 1st year

My thoughts about the program are good. One of my favorite things we did was putting light-sabers together.

Quentin Bryant, St. Rita School, Grade 7, 1st year

I have very much enjoyed the STEP program. The ability to learn more with hands-on activities makes it a better learning experience. I would recommend STEP to other people because it’s a good learning experience, and it’s an opportunity to make new friends.

Aleidy Calderon, Westside Community School of the Arts, Grade 7, 1st year

What I enjoy the most about Cleveland STEP is going to different places that have to do with STEM. I would recommend this program to another student so they can see different careers they might be interested in that involve STEM.

Gisselle Cedeno, Buhrer Dual Language Academy, Grade 7, 1st year

I enjoyed learning about new things like engineering and different careers. I would recommend the program to another person so they could learn new things as well.

Thaileen Cedeno, Bard High School Early College, Grade 9, 1st year

I have really enjoyed being in the STEP program so far. I like that we get to go out and do hands-on activities.

Tamar Clark, East Prep: Woodland Hills, Grade 8, 2nd year

This year was ok. I feel like last year the field trips were more engaging. Yes I would recommend it to another student.

My experience here has been great. The place is really fun, and you go on a lot of trips.

Leah Coats, St. Rita School, Grade 6, 1st year

I enjoyed going to the Engineering College because it made me interested in Chemical Engineering. I would recommend this to a student because maybe they will want to be an engineer too.

Samaria Davis, Hodges Horizon Science Academy, Grade 9, 1st year

What I enjoyed about this year’s STEP program is that we went to different places to learn about engineering. I also liked that we got to do different projects that were really fun. I would recommend this to another student because I think they should have the experience to learn something new.

Daylen Ellington, Solon High School, Grade 9, 2nd year

It’s fun and interesting. I would recommend it to someone so they can learn more about science and colleges.

Chase Fulton, Hawken Middle School, Grade 6, 1st year

I enjoyed this because we traveled around a lot. It was cool discovering new things that I’ve never known before. I would recommend this because it’s entertaining and fun.

Ethan Glaude, Orange High School, Grade 9, 1st year

I enjoyed the hands-on activities because I like experimenting in the science fields and building things that can benefit the world. I would recommend this to a student because it helps reveal what STEM fields you are interested in, and how to pursue your favorite STEM fields in the future.

Evon Gocan, University School, Grade 8, 1st year

I think that STEP gives you the extra knowledge that most schools don’t. This is great for after college too. I would recommend it because it’s fun and interactive and gives lots of knowledge.

Raif Holmes, Twinsburg High School, Grade 9, 1st year

I personally think it’s okay, because I find it boring when a company just presents things. We actually get to build things, and it’s so much fun.

This year at STEP, I feel that we got more insight than in previous years. I would recommend it to others because you learn how to work with others and more about fields of study.

Elijah Kundla, Incarnate Word Academy, Grade 6, 1st year

I have really enjoyed participating in Cleveland STEP this year and would recommend it to others interested in learning about science and engineering careers.  It has given me the opportunity to learn what various kinds of engineers and scientists do when they go to work each day.  My favorite visit was going to Edgewater Park to learn about the Shoreway Project.  It was that day that I came to understand how all the various kinds of engineers work together to solve many problems related to transportation, safety, water control, lighting, and erosion while also maintaining traffic while they are constructing the project.  I also really enjoyed learning how paint is made from the scientists at Sherwin Williams.

Antwane Mitchell, Valley View Boys Leadership Academy, Grade 6, 1st year

The STEP program is fun. I like making the light-sabers the most. I would recommend the program because the program is very fun and hands-on.

London Mitchell, Garfield Heights Middle School, Grade 6, 1st year

The thing I enjoyed the most was the trip on January 20, 2018, because we got to build light-sabers and used our own ideas. I would recommend it to someone because it’s a nice program for students to learn how to use teamwork.

Macario Perkins, Home School, Grade 7, 1st year

I enjoyed the STEP Program and had an educational experience. I would recommend it to somebody who is good at engineering and interested in technology.

Ellie Ramos, Chardon Middle School, Grade 7, 1st year
