The CSTEP Annual Statewide Conference entitled “Journeys Beyond Excellence” is designed to foster talented students’ academic success in preparing for professional licensure or careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) or the licensed professions. Since 1992, the conference has gathered the best and brightest CSTEP students to showcase their faculty supervised research experiences while offering professional and academic development workshops. Each year approximately 600 students and staff attend the conference from over 50 schools and colleges across the state of New York.
This three-day conference exposes students to a variety of motivational, academic, research and career-related workshops, dynamic and engaging speakers, and a graduate and opportunities fair. In addition, the Research Poster Competition serves as the conference centerpiece. During the conference, over 150 students compete in the Research Poster Competition in the following categories: Natural Sciences, Physical Sciences, Technology, Social Sciences and Human Services categories demonstrating research conducted via the UB CSTEP Research Program. The Poster Competition is judged by faculty members nominated from campuses throughout New York State.
The 22nd Annual Statewide CSTEP Student Conference will be hosted by Syracuse University and held on April 11-13, 2014 in Lake George, NY. During the 2013 spring semester, 14 students from the University at Buffalo CSTEP Program attended and participated in the 21st Annual CSTEP Statewide Conference. Funding from the CURCA Travel Award allows top-notch UB CSTEP students to present their research during this statewide conference — and continue the winning tradition during the Research Poster Competition! Several of our past presenters are now pursuing graduate or professional school and the conference represents a tremendous opportunity for them to network, compete and develop their presentation skills.
