Alice 3.0 is the latest release of the Alice programming environment developed at Carnegie Mellon University by the late Randy Pausch. Over 200 universities use Alice to introduce object-oriented, eventdriven programming to novice students. Alice 3.0 generates its worlds as Java code, and answers the primary criticism that earlier versions of Alice were a sealed environment and did not expose student to computer code. This workshop will guide participants in building an Alice 3.0 program, demonstrate its integration with NetBeans Java IDE, and show how Alice 3.0 code can be modified with Java code in NetBeans. Participants will receive the latest release of the software suite.
