Workshop Schedule July 29-30, 2010

This is a two day workshop on Alice that is part of a longer workshop on Project Lead the Way (Engineering) run by Nancy Shaw. Out team is presenting the first two days of our 5 day workshop.

This is a hands-on workshop. We will be teaching you Alice 2.2 and working with you on ideas as to how you can integrate Alice into your courses. It is best to download Alice 2.2 onto your laptop from before you come if you can. Alice 2.2 works well at all levels (3rd grade - 12th grade). We will talk about other versions of Alice at the workshop, but will focus on Alice 2.2.
