Alice is a free gift to you from Carnegie Mellon University. The Alice Project is dedicated to making Alice a widely accessible tool around the world for growing the diversity and access to to early computer science education. Thanks to our donors we continue to be able to fulfill this mission with both our software and supporting materials.
Alice is used by teachers at all levels from middle schools (and sometimes even younger) to universities, in school classrooms and in after school and out of school programming, and in subjects ranging from visual arts and language arts to the fundamentals of programming and introduction to java courses.
Our goal is to support all ranges of Alice usage by creating and sharing best practices for all of these applications.
Alice 3 is the newest installment of the Alice programming language. It has all of the features that have made Alice an exciting and creative first programming experience with an added emphasis on object-oriented concepts. Alice 3 has a new rich gallery of models that includes everything you need to spark your creativity including a full Sims ™ character builder. It can serve as a great early learning tool as well as extending to assist in a full transition to the Java programming language.
