Whether it should be considered service hours depends to a very large extent on why
it is being done and who benefits. If this is just so his class group can access
data easier and/or everyone see the same thing, I would be hesitant to say that this
is a "service project". However, if it is for a group of students in another class
and being set up at the request of a teacher because of the student's proficiency in
computers and web sites, then it might very well be a "service project".
As far as setting up web sites etc. being considered as a service project, and
possibly even an Eagle project, again, you have to ask the questions "who" and
"why". For an Eagle project you also have to ask "how can the youth demonstrate
leadership on this project?" I wouldn't dismiss the idea out-of-hand, but a lot
would depend on the circumstances.
Hope this helps,
