Students can enter this math/science-themed competition either individually or in teams of up to 3. Either way, they must come up with a project centered on mathematics, engineering, biological, and/or physical sciences, then submit a report of their project and findings. To qualify, both individuals and teams must submit a research report about their project and an executive summary (among other things). Those who make it past the initial cuts will advance to the regionals and possibly the finals in Washington DC.
