How to find students interested in computers. Any clubs? Schools & Kids, posted by Where Are They?, a resident of the Downtown North neighborhood, on Sep 25, 2008 at 9:40 am
My son complains that other students don't know as much about computers as he does. Jordan has no club and the computer room at lunch time has only gamers. How can he find others who are knowledgeable at computers? Does Paly have anything? Any mentorships at any companies around? I cannot understand why it is so difficult since we live in Silicon Valley.

As far as I know, the clubs have not started yet. Perhaps when they are announced there will be a club.
Otherwise, talk to the different computer savvy teachers. Sometimes a club that sounds as if it has nothing to do with something actually covers what a student might be looking for. These teachers are often on the ball and can advise what clubs might help.

Well, there is a turnover of students at Jordan. It's not a static place. So if someone has a club it may not continue each and every year. We haven't been there for several years. It is up to each generation of students to voice interest for an activity like a computer club. I'm sure a student can visit the front office, speak with one of the counselors, and get a little helpful advice on starting a club.
