SUNY New Paltz invites students to STEP to success

Register for a seat by Friday, April 15

April 7, 2016

There will be an open house for the SUNY New Paltz Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) on Saturday, May 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Free transportation is available through Monticello Central School District.

Students can attend the open house by registering by Friday, April 15 to reserve a seat on a bus.

Funded by the New York State Education Department, the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) was created to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students who want to pursue majors and careers in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics, physics, psychology and science or math education.

CSTEP at SUNY New Paltz uses the classroom as a lab for exploration and innovation and is designed to foster students’ academic success in preparing for professional licensure or careers related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  Click here to watch a video about STEP at SUNY New Paltz.

The open house will feature keynote speaker and NASA astronaut Roger Crouch and will offer workshops on math magic, flight simulation, scrub club, career planning and more.

Space is limited. Please contact Innovation Instigator and Supervisor of Special Program Dana Taylor at dtaylor@k12mcsd.net or (845) 794-7700 Ext. 30847 to reserve a seat. Permission slips, available here, must be signed by a parent or guardian.
