STEP Summer Program Applications

Applications due March 19

Attention high school educators! GSGC has a great opportunity for your juniors and seniors. The STEP (Science, Technology and Engineering Pipeline) REMOTE Summer Program. And the application deadline is quickly approaching!

The STEP Program is an educational outreach program designed to provide hands-on engineering internships to Atlanta-area high school students. STEP is an immersion program for engineering. Students work in teams on a challenge problem that is inspired by an active Georgia Tech research effort. The students work with a Georgia Tech faculty mentor to solve their challenge problem. At the end of the program, students present the results of their work to parents, teachers, faculty, and industry representatives at a poster session.

While this year’s program is being offered remotely, it’s still a hands-on experience that will challenge students to think outside of the box. Hear from one of last year’s remote students speak about her experience here.

You can get more information or register on the STEP webpage.

Deadline to apply: March 19, 2021
