Computer Programming through Animation with Alice

Bloomsburg University’s Summer Experience 2008

Monday, July 14 through Thursday, July 17, 2008

 

Below are resource materials that I developed in 2008 for Bloomsburg University's Math & Science Summer Experience, an outreach program for middle school students.  The four-day program consisted of three classes, with each class having a 90 to 120 minute session each day.  My class was titled "Computer Programming through Animation using Alice" and I'm pleased to say that it was very well received.
