Summer STEP offers students an intensive three-week learning opportunity through classroom instruction, educational field trips and mentoring by Union College students. Students will attend workshops presented by Union College faculty and local professionals on a variety of STEM topics.

Students will also work in small teams, with the guidance of a STEP Mentor, to design and conduct a research project. At the conclusion of the program, parents are invited to attend a final research presentation, where students present their work. Students may be selected to present their research at the STEP Statewide Conference and Research Competition held in Albany, New York.
