CSTEP Student Receives Honorable Mention

Students of St. Lawrence University's Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) attended and presented at the 25th Annual CSTEP Conference at The Sagamore on Lake George in Bolton Landing, New York, from April 7 to 9.

Tenzin Choeyang ’19 of Woodside, New York competed in the technology & mathematics category of the student research presentations and received an honorable mention for her presentation during the awards ceremony.

Her presentation highlighted results from research with Associate Professor of Statistics Ivan Ramler. During the 2016 CSTEP Summer Research Program they scraped data from the IMDb website to create a teaching tool for introductory statistics courses. 

St. Lawrence University CSTEP students who attended the conference also included Estela Lucas ’18 of Bronx, Heather Thompson ’19 of Heuvelton, Laura Ramirez-Tlapa ‘19 of Astoria, Star Fernandez-Marin ‘19 of Bronx, and Zara Martin ’18 of Jamaica.

As participants in this conference, students attended a graduate school fair, participated in workshops on how to apply to graduate programs, and networked with professionals from the health, law, and science professions. Nearly 700 undergraduate students & staff from more than 50 New York State colleges and universities attended.

CSTEP, a program funded by the New York State Department of Education, is designed to increase the number of underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students who complete pre-professional or professional education programs that lead to professional licensure and to careers in mathematics, science, technology, and health-related fields.
