in reply to [OT] Perl / Computer Science Science Fair Projects

I might suggest the old animal guessing game. The program has a list of questions with yes/no answers and a binary tree that leads to the animal that fits the answers to the questions. If the user thinks of an animal that it can't guess, it requests a question to distinguish it from it's best guess and updates its tree.

    The solution for this one involves decision processing (if/else), looping and loop termination, at least one search algorithm (binary), decision trees, and other topics at the core of CS. Using a program to study the algorithm might be sufficient for part or all of a project of this size, depending on the skill and experience of your sister.
