Instead of tinkering with existing (and mature) applications, you
could consider learning the technologies themselves. eg., you can have
workshops on learning the techniques of GUI programming. You already
have a Python workshop. Add to it some sessions on Gtk+ (or PyGtk?),
Glade, etc.. Some time with GDB, Valgrind and Strace, which are common
across most kinds of programming would also be good.

Good luck,
