We will run an Alice Symposium (two-day followup workshop) June 20-21 for teachers who attended a previous Alice workshop. June 20 will be an Alice Symposium with speakers and posters. Teachers can submit to present a poster. June 21 will be an Alice2 to Alice3 workshop by the CMU Alice people. Teachers can attend either or both of these two days.

There will be a two-week introductory Alice workshop in June 2017 for teachers that want to learn Alice for use in elementary, middle and high schools.
This is a free workshop that includes housing (must share a room, no housing on weekend in between), breakfast, lunch, breaks, parking and contact hours for education credits. There is a small stipend. Travel is not included. Participants are expected to pay for their own travel to the workshop.
This workshop is targetted towards K-12 teachers (mostly 5th-12th grade) that would like to learn how they can integrate the Alice programming language into their curriculum and their students can integrate Alice programming into projects. Alice can be integrated into all types of disciplines: social studies, mathematics, language arts, science, technology, business, foreign language, music, art, etc. There is now a Spanish version of Alice for Spanish teachers.
This is a hands-on workshop. We will be teaching you Alice version 2 and working with you on ideas as to how you can integrate Alice into your courses. It is best to download Alice Version 2 onto your laptop from www.alice.org before you come if you can. Alice Version 2 works well at all levels (3rd grade - 12th grade). We will talk about other versions of Alice at the workshop, but will focus on Alice Version 2.
There will be two 1-day events for teachers who attended any one of our previous Alice workshops. You can attend both days or only one day.
On June 20 we will have an Alice Symposium with invited speakers and a poster session. On June 21 the CMU Alice team will run an Alice2 to Alice3 workshop.
These events include lodging for teachers who are not local, lunch, breaks, parking, and contact hours for credits. There is a small stipend. There are no travel funds, participants are expected to pay their own travel to the workshop.
