An annual regional event where QCC-STEP students present their research, participate in workshops, and meet other STEP students from the NYC Metropolitan area.
STEP Recognition Day takes place each year in May, and is a day to thank the staff, instructors, CUNY staff, and the parents that make QCC-STEP possible. All participating students are recognized for their hard work and achievements. Special awards are given to some students based on participation and attendance. The event also includes lunch, a guest speaker, and a slide show that commemorates the events of the year.
