A lot of you will be graduating and continuing on to college. Those who are might be interested in a really great opportunity provided by Google: The Computer Science Summer Institute. CSSI 2012 is going to take 60 young computer scientists from the US and Canada on an all-expense-paid summer camp. It’s worth submitting an applicationThe application closes April 20th, so there’s still time! This is a great summertime activity.

For everyone, graduating or not, we have this year’s Oregon Game Project ChallengeOGPC 2012, coming up. Registration closes April 4th, so register your team ASAP! Here’s a short narrative on this year’s theme, Urban Planning:

The city of Oregonia is bursting at the seams. Because of a lack of early urban planning, the city is dealing with the legacy of poor decisions and now faces heavy traffic, long commutes, poor access to social services, and a decaying inner city. Can you turn back the clock and write a new future for Oregonia that leads to a harmonious urban plan? Or perhaps you can introduce revolutionary change and help guide Oregonia to a better future.
