My students and I have completed the Bootstrap curriculum and created our games!  We had a launch party and students were excited to share their games.  
We have 8 more weeks of school left and I am wondering what would be a good use of that time?  
Are there additional Bootstrap/WeScheme projects we can do? Or does it make sense to move onto Bootstrap - Reactive and introduce the students to Pyret coding?
Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Thank you.

I think the consensus is to move onto Reactive.  The transition to Pyret is not a problem at all in my experience.

On the other hand, don't get too aggressive about the pace of Reactive (this is based on trying to do this transition from Algebra once, this year, without training on Reactive).  Unit 2, data structures, is a pretty big step and attacking unit 5 on reactors before they've fully digested data structures didn't go well for me.

It sounds like you have time, so just do what you can without rushing it and have fun.

I agree with Tom Hoffman's suggestion. But you can also look into the Bootstrap:Data Science curriculum if you want a taste of something completely different. 

Really depends on what you think your students are going to most benefit from (and be interested in): more sophisticated games, or start to get used to thinking about statistics in a "Bootstrap" way.
