Wow! 110 pages in three years.

My 15-yr. old son did an astrophysics project relating to star formation. He was 1st in the Siemens Competition and 7th in the Intel Science Talent Search. His project included computer programming in IDL and sophisticated statistical analysis, both of which he had never done. Actually, he's never done any computer programming and this is his first science research project since elementary school.

Being with his intellectual peers at these wonderful competitions has been exhilarating for him. He's heading to college in the fall and is looking forward to more good times ahead.
