STEAM Matters At The Institute Of Technology At Syracuse Central


Bridge Street is proud to collaborate with C & S Companies and The Museum of Science and Technology in Downtown Syracuse. “STEAM Matters” shines a spotlight on each of the elements of a STEAM education and this week, we explore the importance of technology.

Eleventh graders from the Institiue of Technology at Syracuse Central are getting firsthand experience in technology building as they plan and prep to compete in both building and competing in a co-kart race. Their race and building skills are part of the P-Tech Program at the school and Career Director Bob Leslie says that the program has a lot to offer students.

“It’s where students can start working on their associate’s degree while in high school which can help them land a position in their field of expertise,” he said. “We need to be totally allied with our businesses, to make sure that we’re producing students coming out of high school and getting ready to work,” he added.  

Approximately 1,000 students are part of the program and there are many different options that P-Tech can afford each student. To learn more about the partnership and the different options available visit
