Alice software! Programming is a motivational way to apply mathematical thinking, problem solving, creativity, persistence and many more fabulous skills. There is a lot of great software and apps for kids (and adults) to enjoy. We were alerted to the Alice project via Ms. Fagen (ECS Lawrence and Pierce). This is from the Alice website: Educational software that teaches students computer programming in a 3D environment. Using an innovative programming environment to support the creation of 3D animations, the Alice Project provides tools and materials for teaching and learning computational thinking, problem solving, and computer programming across a spectrum of ages and grade levels.
