I have a mentor at Google and need a project to work on with them!

Hi

First, sorry if this is in the wrong place - I couldn't think where to put it.

So, I've been very lucky and managed to get a Mentor at Google, with 8 meetings over the next 3 months. I really want to make the absolutely most out of the opportunity by starting work on a project with him and when I get stuck discussing the problem with him. Problem is, my main area of expertise is iOS apps and at Google he'll probably know about Android apps? I don't want the sessions to just be like a teaching session! If he does know about iOS apps I probably will discuss with him doing an iOS app.

One thing we will probably both have in common is the ability to code Python (I got the impression that many people at Google can do this). So, what I am asking is, can anybody think of a really interesting (and difficult?) project we could work on? Not something 'really useful' or 'commercially viable', just something I (I've just started working on Python) would find challenging and that he would not find boring?

Or for that matter any other ideas atall, such as an experimental website?

Sam
