I got accepted into a fairly competitive three-year program at my high school where we work with local colleges on scientific research and I need to choose what to do within the next couple of months. We publish our findings with several science organizations/magazines, so I want to pick a field that still has many scientists working in it. I have taken Biology and our school's mandatory freshman Physical Science class (1/3 chemistry, 1/3 physics, 1/3 earth science), and I'm taking AP Calc/Comp Physics next year. I've read several popular science books by Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, etc. but I know that those sort of books are more catered to laypeople. Thank you!
