For those of you who want a further challenge in coding and computer science, please take a look at the following presentation on the Google Code-in contest. It is available to any student 13-17 years old. It is an excellent way to get real-world experience in programming and working with industry experts in open-source software.
Here is the link to past contests so you can see what other people have worked on in the past. There is a lot of projects based on python so if that interests you, you can choose those ones when they come out later in November:
If interested, I will hold weekly lunch meetings starting in November, to help out students who have signed up. We may also have FLEX time available for those who may wish to work during that time.
