Animation Programming (for Teens)
Engineering & Technology
We will use Alice 3 to learn the basics of object-oriented animation programming. Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a teaching tool for introductory computing. It uses 3D graphics and a drag-and-drop interface to facilitate a more engaging, less frustrating first programming experience. Alice 3 is FREE to download to use in class & at home. Laptop computers provided or bring your own!
Laptop computers required for class (some teachers can provide one, if needed).
We will install a free program called Alice version 3.
