My favorite paper on projects is one Christopher Field had in the 1985
Proceedings of the Section on Statistical Education of the ASA.
Sammples:

Are there more incidents in a mental institution during a full
moon?

Who does the grocery shopping in a supermarket, looking at
factors of age, sex, size of order?

How does yeild of popcorn depend on brand of corn and type
of popper?

Do you get more red lights when you are in a hurry?

Alas, hardly anyone has these decade old proceedings laying around.
Which brings me to my main point: is there any way we could get
together an anthology of papers relevant to AP Stats. that have been
published in places to which high school teachers would normally not
have access? I imagine the ASA would hold the copyright to most of
these.
