research project idea!? Hey, I am currently a junior in high school, and I need help on choosing a research topic. While looking and analyzing many "web pages" over the prestigious Caltech, I noticed one common thing. They only wanted students who showed a strong admiration toward science and math. And many students would show this by turning in a research project. I have, in my opinion, a great admiration for both these topics. Currently, I want to start a research project, but not alone. I wish to collaborate with an older adult, such as a teacher. I have someone in mind who would gladly take up the oppurtunity, but I don't know what I could research to turn in to Caltech, as well as any other universities. I love to learn about the theoretical side of physics, and presently have a strong interest in particle physics. Physics, is also good too though :). Do you guys have any ideas on what I can begin researching now?
