I am absolutely enraged after looking at this years Intel Science Fair. I would like to start a legitimate discussion about this. Here is my main issue with the science fair; THE PROFESSORS. I know there are a few professor on this board and I would love to hear your opinions about my argument. I am completely disgusted with how some professors will spend more time with overachieving high school students who more than likely have already solidified an acceptance to a great university, than their own undergraduate students who: 1) first of all, pay their salary (in most cases, unless the uni is public, but still you get my point, dont nit pick me to death) 2) are more equipped to tackle real research than a high school student. I am not mad at the high school students; listen these kids are just on their game more so than I was at that age, more power to them. I saw the list of professors, and I almost broke my computer because one of the professors on the list, I know very well; does not teach any undergrads, is not accesible to undergrads AT ALL, has a stellar reputation but helps HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS EVERY YEAR! Every year this professor has had at least an Intel Semi Finalist, and I know for a fact this professor is INVISIBLE to undergrads at my institution. Plus, how legitimate is it that an 18 year old is doing REAL RESEARCH ON STRING TOPOLOGY or GENERAL RELATVITY?!!! Anyone? Am I just a raving lunatic? Jealousy maybe? I don't know, but I'm beyond annoyed.
