Glen Cove Students Attend Diversity Summit


Fourteen Glen Cove High School students in NYIT’s STEP program took part in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Diversity Summit at Farmingdale State College on March 17.

Four students entered the poster/research competition while the others attended workshops on mindfulness and business savvy with a focus on the different types of communication styles.

The students also had the opportunity to tour the Zspace van, learn about the planets in the Vanderbilt Museum van, speak to a paramedic and view the inside of an ambulance. Additionally, the school’s robotics team captain showed other students the robot created by the STEP team as well as the tricks it can perform.
