Adventures in Alice Programming

March 23, 2013





NOTE: WE ARE NOW FULL FOR BOTH SESSIONS!







The Duke University Computer Science Department and Duke ACM is holding an activity day for current 6th graders to learn about computer animation using the Alice 3D virtuals worlds programming enviroment.

There will be two sessions, one in the morning from 9am-noon and a second one in the afternoon from 1:30pm-4:30pm.

This activity is for students with no programming experience to learn basic computer programming skills while having fun creating and designing 3D animations, interactive stories, and games. Alice is very easy to use and it possesses a vast library of various 3D objects, characters, animals, environments, settings, and other things for students to add to their Alice worlds. At each session, we will introduce you to the basics of using Alice and demo several Alice animations and games. Then we will do various activities and challenges with you. We will provide laptops to use for the session, and Alice is a free program at www.alice.org.
