iSTEP (innovative Student Technology ExPerience) is a TechBridgeWorld program that provides Carnegie Mellon students with real-world experience in applying their knowledge and skills for creative problem solving in unfamiliar settings. The multidisciplinary iSTEP team is comprised of a mix of undergraduate and graduate students and recent alumni from various departments at Carnegie Mellon. The students work in a globally-distributed team with some members working from campus with others living and working at the overseas partner location.

Together with TechBridgeWorld, the iSTEP team collaborates on technology research projects for underserved communities with local partners. The iSTEP internship locations include Tanzania in 2009, Bangladesh in 2010 and Uruguay in 2011 with projects in assistive technology, literacy tools and information exchange.
