Class: 3-D Animation and Games using ALICE 2.0 (Both boys and girls are welcome, but girls are encouraged to participate in this particular camp.)Date: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – August 12-14, 2014Age Group: 12-18 yrs. $69.00Description: Beginning level no prior experience needed. The Alice 3-D software system is a learning tool for beginning level programmers. Students will be able to make storytelling animations and interactive games with Alice programming software. One of the many strengths of Alice is that it has been able to make abstract concepts concrete in the eyes of first – time programmers by using drag-drop methods that minimizes syntax errors. By using 3-D graphics, Alice speaks directly to a generation raised on video games. We encourage girls to sign up for this class.
