Enjoyable Coding With Alice

Enjoyable Coding With Alice


Date: 8/12 to 8/16

TIme: 1 PM to 4 PM

This camp is perfect for middle school students who have not done any programming so far. It uses drag and drop programming, which means no syntax errors! You can convert your idea to code quickly and see it in action! You can code 3D animations or games with ease. Alice comes with a powerful graphics library that minimizes coding effort. Visit www.utdallas.edu/~jeyv/alice to preview the content. Since Alice does require “careful” drop operations, we do not recommend Elementary students to take Alice directly, we prefer them to start with Scratch.

After a short introduction about Alice tool, we will work on a series of exercises/projects throughout the camp. Please bring Windows/Mac/Linux laptop with Alice 2 installed from http://www.alice.org/get-alice/alice-2. Download the appropriate one listed below English Gallery Complete: Windows / Mac / Linux, then follow the instructions specified in Installing Alice 2. These are huge download files. If you cannot download and install it, do not worry – we will have the downloaded files ready to install. Ask for help as soon as you come in. Alice 3 software is quite different and we will NOT use it in this workshop. Windows laptop is preferred, but Alice does work well in Mac and Linux as well. Once installed, Alice behaves exactly the same way in all environments.
