Good points about tic-tac-toe, which was actually the game I had in my head while writing. My worry, I think, might be the difficulty convincing an older science teacher with limited domain knowledge that the problem is hard enough for a science fair project.

I think that shouldn't be a blocker. People can be dealt with, if you know how ;-)

Some people are easily impressed by numbers. For example the game could have a small counter telling you that there are $n possible game plays left, and $n starts at 300k. That demonstrates that the program does really much work.

I assume that she has to write some kind of description, and if that nicely illustrates the search trees, that could convince other teachers.

Again others are impressed by everything that computers do, those should be the easiest to convince.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
