Mission Statement

Our mission is to foster interest among all Connecticut high school students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by providing experiences for them to present their original research and interact with like-minded students and professionals.

We advocate for STEM and we seek to inspire and educate students, academics, parents and other members of our communities. In addition to sponsoring the Connecticut STEM Fair[1] each year, the CT STEM Foundation has supported advanced teacher training, and held some extraordinary events for students to see the practical application of science via field trips and lectures.
