    This self-published handbook compiled STEM resources (such as scholarship and mentorship programs) available online, at the University of Toronto and around the GTA that serve students during high school and through their transition to post-secondary education. It was published in December 2018 for Step Into STEM's first event: STEM Beyond High School.
