High school research suggestions

  1. May 1, 2010 #1

    First of all, I'm not sure whether this topic belongs here or in the academic guidance section -- I chose here because I think people reading this board would be more knowledgeable about the subject matter.

    Anyway, I'm a current high school junior, and since the beginning of the school year I've been doing an internship at Fermilab, where I coded an nbody simulation and ran some simulations using it (ie halo formation, merging, etc). It's a basic program, but I think it's pretty good for a high-schooler and I worked hard on it. I'd like to enter a science competition in the fall such as Siemens or Intel, but I don't think that what I've done so far would suffice -- I think that I would need to have done more research.

    Does anyone here have ideas on how to continue my research/use my program, besides simply creating and merging haloes?
