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 activities and experiments developed and led by STEM professionals that make science, technology, engineering, and math come alive.

The Cleveland STEP experience, a partnership between Cleveland Water and Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD), encourages students at any school in the Cleveland Water/NEORSD service area to build toward a career in STEM by connecting them to educational institutions, businesses, and industry and community leaders. This year's program will be held virtually from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. one Saturday of each month September through April.

  • September 18th - Orientation/NEORSD
