As information system becomes core infrastructure of our society, the size and complexity of software products increase rapidly. So dependable and efficient software development methods are demanded and new methods such as an agile method are introduced. It is, however, not easy to teach and excise processes of software development. Most of undergraduate students in computer and software engineering courses are busy for mastering basic programming skills and for understanding computer and DB systems. There is almost no room for learning skills for software development in Japan. There are, however, always some percentages of students who can easily master basic skills and knowledge and are ready to learn more. So we decided to start a project practices as an extracurricular activity. The project is aimed for students to learn an agile method and actual experiences of group development processes. In this presentation we report our work in progress of extracurricular activities for project practices of agile software development to highly-motivated undergraduate students.
