    I think they have forums as well should cover all your basics of a senior design project, I'm sure they already gave you the outline, something like this

    solar power seniors are not so special. i was thinking of something new and no one would think about. remember that im looking to get the first prize.

    If you are going to *earn* first prize, perhaps it should be your idea.
    You can certainly bounce your ideas off of us and we can help you calibrate them.

    the earth has a magnetic field, correct? perhaps several coils of wire around the earth in space would generate electricity due to the earths rotation.
