I hope this is not in the wrong forum but it may be and if it is, I apologize. I put this under academic guidance because learning how to research is something one normally does best with in a university of some sort. I'd like to know how I should go about trying to find a "job" assisting some lab with the tiny parts of their research. I live near a decent Engineering school (Georgia Tech specifically) but I doubt I'd be able to do anything there. My physics teacher told me that most times they figure it's not worth their time to train a high school student enough to make them useful... Does anyone have any advice on what I could do for research for a competition like Seimens? Would it be worth me checking with some of the smaller tech schools? Thank you in advanced for any and all help.
