Bowl Powered by AT&T
October 29, 2016, FMCC, Johnstown,
The Capital District STEP programs (Albany Medical College,
SUNY Albany, Union College, RPI and FMCC) created and participated
in the very first STEP Scholar’s Bowl at FMCC on October
29th. The event was co-sponsored by AT&T and this year’s
winner was Union College STEP! The competition included quiz
style matches revolving around Regent’s exam questions
where teams went head to head with buzzers in hand.
Additionally,teams competed in hands-on challenge rooms where
they had to solve an engineering problem in an allotted amount
of time for points. CSTEP students from FMCC and SCCC (Schenectady
County Community College) were volunteers at the event and
helped with score keeping, challenge room judging & set
up, and they interacted with the STEP students to share their
experiences in CSTEP. The event was capped off with lunch,
a free t-shirt and Senator Paul Tonko as the keynote speaker.
The second annual STEP Scholar’s Bowl is tentatively
planned for April 21st, 2018 at FMCC.
