Alice Game Programming (Ages 9 to 13) / Starts June 25, 2012 (5days)
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education is America’s initiative to engage students in STEM degrees. Students will be introduced to Alice, an interactive 3D-programming environment from Carnegie Mellon University. Students learn to create animations and games using the Alice software. Alice offers the best first exposure to programming for students by providing an intuitive 3D environment for teaching object-oriented programming. Students learn common programming constructs, basic algorithm design and storyboarding of movies and games. Only a basic familiarity with computers is needed. Judy Pino teaches at SFCC and around the United States.
Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., June 25, 5 days.
