Alice


Alice is a desktop app developed by Carnegie Melon. More advanced than other programming tools for kids, Alice teaches the fundamentals of programming in a 3D setting. This makes it ideal for teens. While working in the app, students can see the code behind the projects they create on the screen. Programming concepts are learned while students create animated movies and basic video games that they can then share on the internet. Note: Java runtime is needed for Alice.

Price: Free Devices: Desktop App, Windows, Mac, Linux Ages: 13+
