question for siemens/intel research. now will you have to tell your mentor that you are interested in doing siemens/intel and they will help you design a project that can be entered or is it all on your own thinking? I have done prior research one but i was not at a point where i understood everything. The main purpose of this program for me would be to obviously do research and submit it to siemens/intel since i already live near a prestigious university and i can easily intern there. and what categories for siemens/intel seem to win more often? i'm interested in pathology so idk... sorry if i made absolutely no sense.
