[seul-edu] Perl for 9th graders

One of the local high school math teachers just sent 
me an (inspiring!) email that I thought I would pass along.

There are no programming classes at this high school.
I showed her the simple math perl scripts in the teachers
guide and sent her a link for CPAN. If anyone knows of any 
other sites suitable for 9th or 10th graders, I'd be 
glad to pass them on.
