I don't know how familiar anyone here is with the http://www.sciserv.org/sts/ [Broken] but it's basically a super-science fair for high school seniors.

Looking through http://www.sciserv.org/sts/62sts/winners.asp, I'm just trying to figure out how the hell they do it? How can you do research like that while only a high school student?

Any thoughts?

By not having a social life and probably being put through very expensive private schools for education.

That's it! It has to be.
The trick is; you don't take the old one out.

Hmmm. Makes you wonder if the winners ever actually need the $100K scholarship.

:) Yep. Have you seen the kids at some of those high-powered East Coast prep schools (eg Dalton)? It is just amazing...

They get into one of many summy science research programs at a University. Two years ago two kids who I knew competed. One was a finalist - http://www.sciserv.org/sts/60sts/Areen.asp - he was a cool guy from what I could tell. The other got 2nd in the nation - http://www.sciserv.org/sts/60sts/Craig.asp - he was kind of an arogant dork.
