The focus of this pilot study was to explore possible patterns of formative experiences, cognitive abilities, and personality characteristics that could be labeled as computer technology talent. Nine members of a high school computer programming club participated in a technology-based project with the researchers. As part of the project evaluation, each student took part in a semi-structured interview with one of the researchers. Questions encompassed perceptions and evaluations of the project, as well as explorations of dimensions of computer technology talent. Findings included discernable patterns and recurring themes in these students' lives, which were reflected in their histories with computing, family support, and key educational experiences.
