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!

I can't imagine you've got all that many choices. You'll have to work on your project with someone at the college, which means you're pretty much restricted to what they work on and what resources they can offer you. While you might be able to pick your own topic, if you don't have the background to work in the field mostly on your own, you won't get anywhere.
