STEP Goes to Washington

The RPI STEP program is funded by the New York State Department of Education and is designed to assist disadvantaged secondary students and those from minority groups underrepresented in scientific, technical, and health-related professions “to acquire the skills, attitudes, and abilities to pursue professional or pre-professional study in postsecondary degree programs in scientific, technical, and health-related fields.” Students enrolled in “Out of This World Engineering” in the RPI STEP program spent half their winter break traveling to the D.C. area as the culminating experience for this year’s course. Among the stops for the students were the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Howard University, the Capitol Building and Congressman Paul Tonko’s office, the monuments on the Washington Mall, and the National Air and Space Museum Stephen F. Udvar-Hazy Center. According to Cynthia Smith (who is pictured on the back row, far right), this was the first trip to Washington for the students. Not pictured was RPI student mentor and photographer Anda Lupse ’12.
