Which area of EE are you in?  Or just starting on that as well?

If you're just starting, chanllege yourself to build a R mesh and
calculate the Thevenin equivalent looking out from a particular node.
Then you can expand that to an RLC network.

Besure to use Objects, think in terms of objects, and code in objects.
 Don't hard code the data type.  You'll be able to see how magical the
Duck Typing is in Python.

Have fun.
