I would like to teach some scientific/statistical computing to my 13 
year old nephew and was considering using R for this.  He has a Mac G3 
OS 9.1.

I am looking for ideas for problems that would be interesting and 
motivating for someone that age.  I recently taught him the basics of 
HTML and noticed that he particularly was intrigued by the ability to 
change colors; thus, perhaps problems that involve flashy color plots 
would keep his attention.

Thanks for any ideas.
