I am interested in participating in them, just finished 8th grade, and I know I have to be older to participate but I want to get a head start.

I know some semifinalists for the Intel Talent Search, but they haven't been very helpful. Thank you so much!

P.S. : I'd like my project to do with medicine. Thanks again! :)
