Research is done at a Research Station and Super Computer.

In order to do research on tier 1, you must have power and Dirt being delivered to your Research Station. The 1st tier of research projects require several iterations of Novice Research. You will not have access to the higher tier power generators when you start, so you will need a manual generator. The 2nd to 5th tiers will require the Super Computer as well - provided with power and Water, as they all contain many iterations of Novice and Intermediary Research. These stations may have decor value, but they currently serve no function once all research projects are completed and may be deconstructed.

Duplicants must be assigned to Research Assistant, Scientist and Tenured Scientist jobs to be able to use the Super Computer and improve Research skill.
