Sample Projects from Advanced Competitions

Through the generosity of some past participants, we can make available actual research papers submitted to the Siemens Competition, the Intel Science Talent Search (STS), and other top competitions.

Caution! These papers can give you a feel for what actual and successful submissions might look like; however, you should not expect to understand every detail they contain. Do not let a difficult paper scare you away. Each participant had to work hard to learn about and conduct research in his or her area. With equivalent effort, you can do the same.

Note: You should not use these past submissions as examples of how to format a document for future competitions. The rules are very specific and they may change!
