The Science and Technology Education Partnership (STEP) was established to bridge the skills gap between our K-12 students and high-technology industry needs. STEP produces its flagship science and technology education event every year, the STEP Conference. The first of its kind in the region, this conference serves to ignite the imagination of thousands of students, so that they might pursue promising careers in high-technology fields. It also provides hands-on training to hundreds of K-12 teachers, ensuring they have the latest tools to keep our students competitive in the global marketplace.

For almost a decade, CE-CERT has been a proud partner of STEPCon. Each year we have helped to excel the high school portion of the conference. Because of recent in-person restrictions, we have expanded our outreach to a more virtual-friendly setting. Please select the links below to view CE-CERT's virtual participation:
