+ - Teaching Middle Schoolers PHP

Submitted by
Altari
Altari writes "I'm one of several parents that will be giving mini-classes (45 minutes) on topics we're familiar with. One of my assigned topics is PHP, and I'll be presenting to about 10 interested kids age 13-15. Not only am I out of touch with what middle schoolers find interesting (my oldest daughter is only 5), I'm not entirely sure about the scope of my presentation. Since this is supposed to be a kind of introduction to the topic, I'm unsure of what basic topics to cover and how to make them engaging to middle schoolers.

Any ideas?"
