Alex McGreevy

Region: Northern
Program Institution:
Clarkson University


College/University: Clarkson University
Major/Minor: Engineering and Management

Significant Professional or Academic Accomplishments: Alex McGreevy is currently a sophomore Engineering and Management major at Clarkson University. This major integrates business with science, engineering, and technology. Alex was a STEP student for four years and took full advantage of the features of our program. In particular, Alex’s research project on “The Effects of Magnetic Fields on Living Organisms” won a third place trophy at the 2010 STEP Statewide Student Conference in Albany, NY. Alex participated in Science Olympiad and our local roller coaster design competition, applying ideas from math and science to real world problems. Since coming to Clarkson, Alex has acted as a mentor to our current STEP students by helping run workshops during our campus visits which focus on college preparation and STEM careers. He has run activities at our local Day of Service events such as the North Country Science and Engineering Festival. He also has worked closely with students on research projects and analysis of roller coaster physics during our Summer Roller Coaster Camp for two years in a row. He has been a true asset to our team since he has been involved with nearly all aspects of our program as a mentor, and he provides a unique perspective since he was a STEP student. Academically, Alex has embraced college. He participated in the Physics Team Design Program and Advanced Laboratory Experience for students enrolled in the Calculus-based Physics sequence. This program provides a simulated research experience to help prepare students for internships and careers in the applied sciences. We look forward to watching his career unfold.
