What are some great CS extracurriculars/programs?
Answered

hey!!! for context, I am a current sophomore hoping to pursue compsci. I honestly do really love it, and often feel like I don’t do enough to prove that. Currently, all I have done is make a create-your-own-adventure in python (which I spent at least 50 hours on), but nothing else. What are some extra activités that would really help me stand out and that are enjoyable? I don’t have amazing experience yet, just beginner python and HTML. My school has a coding club but they do absolutely nothing, and they don’t allow people to start clubs if a similar one already exists.

Any suggestions are super helpful, I’m looking for something a little more creative to do, something unique!

I appreciate your time, thank you!!
