An annual regional event where QCC-STEP students present their research, participate in workshops, and meet other STEP students from the NYC Metropolitan area.
Students who participate in research at QCC attend an annual 2-day conference held in Albany. They present a poster based on their research to a panel of judges and receive helpful feedback. The conference also includes science competitions, educational workshops, formal dinner events with motivational speakers, and other fun and educational activities. This conference is held each year at the Albany Marriot in March.
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.
