Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

This workshop is for rising 6th-8th grade children. In this session you will use free software from CMU called Alice to allow you to make 3D movies. Participants will use LEGO NXT kits to create spin art, kick a ball, or follow a black line. You will learn the basics of object-oriented programming: classes, objects, and methods (behaviors). You will also learn some basic computing concepts: repetition (loops), conditionals, and variables. For more information on Alice see http://www.alice.org.
