Microsoft runs an annual high school outreach program to teach kids software engineering by building them into a project group to build their own "Hunt the Wumpus" game. This year it's being brought to Atlanta, starting with the St. Pius X high school in northeast Atlanta. A group of 9 students will meet with a set of mentors once a week during class time to learn the principles of software engineering and work on the next stage of their game.

The Wumpus project is currently recruiting mentors to meet with students once a week, on Fridays from 2-3pm from the end of January to the end of March, and a few more times in May. J# experience is a bonus but not a requirement; all experienced software developers are invited. A schedule and more information is posted on http://blogs.msdn.com/sloh/archive/category/11517.aspx. If you are interested in helping out with this project, please contact Sue Loh ASAP via the contact link from that blog page.
