The Science Technology Entry Program at Brooklyn College (BCSTEP) is funded by the Bureau of Professional Career Opportunity Program through the New York State Education Department. Its aim is to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantage students prepared to enter college, and major/train in mathematics, science, technology, and health related fields and the licensed professions.
To this end the overall theme of the BCSTEP Program is to nurture curiosity in its student participants. Students who are curious ask questions, seek information and set goals for themselves. BCSTEP integrates rising 7th through 12th grade science and math education with academic support, science enrichment and academic and career counseling.
