Wanted: Programming Topics for High School Students

Posted by Phil Weber on January 6, 2006

Several co-workers and I have volunteered to present lunch-hour sessions for Advanced Placement computer science students at a local high school. Mine is on January 30 and I need to choose a topic. Games and gadgets would probably go over well; maybe something about how chicks dig geeks? :-)

Seriously, if you have any ideas, please share them!

I think Scott Hansleman summed it up well in this post:

I know many students coming out of HS/College who are very specialised in one language or methodology. And they don’t want to try anything new unless they have to.

Being specialised is nice, but being flexible is pretty important too.
