The Science & Technology Entry Program (STEP) at New York University (NYU) is an innovative pre-college enrichment program for talented middle and high school students from any New York schools. Our goal is to encourage and increase the presence of historically under-represented groups in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM careers) and licensed professions.
