The instructions for building Step are there:

You need to issue the 'cmake ' command (with proper arguments) in the whole 
kdeedu build dir and look at the output for missing dependencies.
As indicated on the webpage gmm is needed for Step to build, optional are GSL 
and libqalculate which Debian should provide.

Then you cd to libkdeedu build dir and issue make and same in step build dir.

4.2 beta 1 was tagged and will be out in a few days, maybe ask Debian Edu 
packagers to package it for you.

Best regards,
