I'll keep this question short and to the point.
I'm going into my senior year of high school, will have an independent research period, and have few ides of what to do during this period.
Right now, I was thinking about doing analysises of large data sets (see "Super Crunchers" book). However, I can't faind any large data sets to use and, if I did, I wouldn't know where to start.
However, I'm open to ANY ideas for projects. I would like to stay near the engineering/phsyics realm if it were to be data set analysis, since those are my most likely college majors, alongside math. I only know up to calc at the moment, but am willing to teach myself more. Currently, my favorite topic is fractals.
I can program in Mathematica if that helps at all.
Thank you so much for ANY tip you can provde me. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them.
PS Anyone who wants to be my mentor is welcome haha :b
