This page provides links to publicly available databases to help guide new and developing STEM research programs in Connecticut high schools. By providing these resources we hope to support the development of STEM research among students from schools that do not necessarily have the resources for wet-lab or bench research. Below are a few resources related to each of the 8 competitive research categories.
