  1. Password Generator: Design a password generator that produces secure and memorable passwords based on user-specified criteria. This project will introduce students to concepts like random number generation, string manipulation, and user input validation. They can add their own cipher method with keys to make them very secure.

  2. To-Do List Application: Create a simple to-do list application that allows users to add, remove, and mark tasks as completed. This project will teach students about data structures like lists and how to store and retrieve data efficiently. They can use a database, a .csv file or .txt file to store data.

  3. Calculator App: Develop a fairly-advanced calculator application capable of performing arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and more advanced methods involving trigonometry and statistics. This project will introduce students to variables, operators, and control flow statements like if-else statements.

  4. Number Guesser Game: Build a number guessing game where the computer generates a random number, and the user tries to guess it within a specified number of attempts. This project will enhance students' understanding of algorithms and conditional statements. The project can be extended by awarding scores for success and deducting them for repeated failures.

  5. RPS Game: Create a Rock, Paper, Scissors game where the user plays against the computer. This game will introduce students to random number generation, decision-making, and user interaction. The students can use Visual Studio 2022 with its GUI to make it more elegant and user-inspiring.

  6. Dice Rolling Simulator: Design a dice rolling simulator that allows users to roll a virtual die and view the result. This project will teach students about random number generation and conditional statements. This can be extended to a more elaborate game by adding more die to get a second set of random numbers.

  7. Word Scrambler: Develop a word scrambler application where the user enters a word, and the program rearranges its letters. This project will introduce students to string manipulation and conditional statements. You can extend the project from simpler ones to more elaborate forms, after winning the trust of users.

  8. Simple Chatbot: Create a rudimentary chatbot that can engage in basic conversations with users. This project will introduce students to natural language processing and user input handling. This project will give students an opportunity to have the first taste of Machine Learning - ML.

  9. Sudoku Solver: Design a sudoku solver that can automatically complete a given sudoku puzzle. This project will challenge students' problem-solving and algorithm design skills. As part of this project, the students can learn a few algorithms during the process.

  10. Password Strength Checker: Build a password strength checker that evaluates the complexity of a given password based on its length, character variety, and special character usage. This project will introduce students to regular expressions and data validation techniques. They can use the programming language of their choice for this.
