My son is a high school junior; he's been a martial artist since he was 6 years old. He's currently in the early stages of his Intel research project, looking at martial arts and adolescent maturity. He hypothesizes that participation in the martial arts helps kids make better choices in other areas of their lives. He needs a mentor to help him with research design and statistical evaluation. Anyone out there in the field of psych, adolescent behavior, statistics, education or research? If you can help, or if know someone who'd be interested, please respond to his post on the "Meet & Greet" forum. Thanks.
Hey everybody, my name is Ethan, and I am currently a high school student in New York. I have begun research for the INTEL ISEF competition, a rather prestigious competition for research students and specialists alike.
My research topic is whether there is an effect on either the participation in martial arts (or duration of training) on the maturity of adolescents.
I'm looking for a specialist or professor who would be interested in my project, and willing to serve as both an advisor and mentor.
If anybody out there is interested in my topic, or would like to know more, I would certainly respond to questions. Thank you, and happy holidays!
