The Cleveland Student Technical Enrichment Program (STEP) is a free, fun STEM education program for 6th through 9th-grade students in our service area. Students engage in hands-on learning designed to inspire curiosity and build toward a future career in STEM.
Since 1994, Cleveland STEP has been giving students 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.
Sessions are led by STEM professionals from premier institutions like NASA, Case Western Reserve University, and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and are held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. one Saturday of the month, September through April.
