Complete the attached form below based on the category of the project (Engineering project or Science project). Be able to concisely describe your project so the potential mentor can decide if he/she can provide appropriate advice. Be sure to answer the required information in the form outlining your project’s research plan. The form will be used as a guide to create a dialog with the mentor about your project.
