|This site describes ongoing efforts between the
Bartol Research Institute of the
University of Delaware and the
Charter School of Wilmington
to bring talented high school students into a structured research
Beginning in the Spring of 1999 a group of students undertook an original research project conceived by advisors within the space physics community. The students have pursued that project as a team, each participant assuming responsibilities in keeping with their own individual talents and interests. The students range from Freshmen through Seniors at the Charter School and have varying degrees of experience in mathematics and computer programming.
There is the hope and expectation that this effort will result in an original scientific publication to be written in the Fall of 2000.
