Introduction:
 

What is and what can I do with Alice? Alice is a modern programming environment designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn basic computer science while creating animated movies, simple video games, where students control the behavior of 3D objects and characters in a virtual world. What have people built with Alice? Lots of things! There are several examples of student worlds on our forums and we will be posting several projects that students created in classrooms teaching with Alice. Do I need to be a programmer to use Alice? Absolutely not! The interface is designed to provide an easy, intuitive interface for novice, experienced, and non-programmers alike. Is Alice supported? We have a small but hard-working staff working on providing Alice support, improving Alice, and managing our web pages. The best way to reach us is to post your inquiry or comment on the forums. The team and the Alice community will be glad to help! You can also contact us directly.
