The Climate Code Foundation is applying to be a mentoring organisation
for Google Summer of Code 2011.  This is an opportunity for students
to be paid $5000 by Google, to work on open-source climate science
software for a period between May and August.  Google Summer of Code
has been running for several years now and is highly regarded by
participants and across the wider open-source software world.

We have a number of project ideas for climate science software, mostly
connected to our existing Clear Climate Code work.  See
<http://code.google.com/p/ccc-gistemp/wiki/GSoC2011>  However, we would
welcome other ideas addressing our Foundation goals (to improve public
understanding of climate science, through software activities).  The
way GSoC works is that project proposals are developed by students,
based on mentor ideas, and then agreed by mentors.

If you know any students who might be suitable for this, please
encourage them to get in touch.
