Presentation:

  "Alice", a beginners programming environment

  Presented by:
    Cameron Tully-Smith

  Alice is an open source 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 freely available teaching
  tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented
  programming.  It allows students to learn fundamental programming
  concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video
  games.  In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles)
  populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate
  the objects.  (See: http://www.alice.org/ )
