Just to show what I know of calculators, I thought (for a moment) that you meant http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/145/145869.html when you said Unity. :P
The redesigning hardware one sounds interesting...

I think the fact you managed to create a game in a slow language under a limited platform is what probably amazed them the most. Congrats again ^^

"Glenbard North High School senior Ray Perry from the DuPage County ACT-SO chapter has been awarded the gold medal in Computer Science for his impressive project that involved turning a calculator into a low-cost gaming device."

Low cost? These calcs are way overpriced. You can get a Nintendo DS lite for the same cost as a 84 SE.

Congrats! :D

Haha, I think low-performance would have been more appropriate XD

I mean, you can get a PS2 for cheaper than a 83+, I think.
