The Innovative Student Technology ExPerience (iSTEP) is an internship program with TechBridgeWorld, a research group at Carnegie Mellon University based in the Robotics Institute.
This summer, a team of four undergraduate students will be continuing TechBridgeWorld’s partnership with the Matrhu Educational Trust for the Blind and the Mathru Center for the Differently Abled in Bangalore, India. We will be working on educational technologies engineered with compassion.
