Schedule 9am arrival 11:30am-12:30pm lunch at Panther Dining Hall (all you care to eat) 3pm dismissal We will have breaks every now and then in the afternoon and morning. Restrooms are located in the

center of the Olin building. No food or drink in the computer labs. Oscars We will demonstrate students projects Everyone is invited (friends and family) 1:30pm, Friday, July 20th Olin Life Science Auditorium (Room 130)

Signing in and out Please check-in every morning and again at dismissal The parents/guardians need to sign the students in and out Students who drive themselves can sign themselves in and out

Flash Drives Leave the flash drives with the Alice software and name tags well distribute them every morning. You can have the flash drives at the end of camp

Emergency Contact Please verify that we have your emergency contact information correct. Goals Have fun. Make simple computer-generated animations.

Introduce computational thinking. Alice 3D animation Designed to ease students into computational problem solving actions of characters in 3D (vs manipulation of data)

Computer Science (CS) Car drivers vs. car designers CS is not using a computer CS designs and creates software and hardware Little AP CS in Brevard high schools

1 out of 16 public high schools a few years ago Currently 6 out of 16 (6 with AP CSP, 2 with AP CS) Available at Florida Virtual School Brief Analogy Multiplication Compare two ways of multiplying:

n8 = n*n*n*n*n*n*n*n 7 multiplications Or: m = n*n; p = m*m; p*p -> n8 Only 3 multiplications required

interact in an imagined 3D world. Along the way, you learn how to write a simple computer program. The results dont look like Toy Story, but you can experience the satisfaction of getting a computer to do what you want it to doand of showing off waddling penguins or attacking bugs.

In a computer program, each instruction specifies an action. Writing a program to animate 3D objects is all about deciding what actions you want these objects to perform. With Alice, students begin by crafting stories. Then, they work out lists of actions that must go into the programs to tell the story. The students

learn how to break a large problem into smaller pieces. Its a bit like doing a word problem in math. Users select characters, such as ice skaters or monsters, and environments, such as a forest or a city. They then create scenes in which the characters talk and move around in these

environments. Working with Alice, students arent faced with the hardest part of writing a computer program specifying in excruciating detail, and in exactly the right language, every little thing that has to happen All ICPC Winners Since 2000
