Animation Gaming & 3D Virtual World

Students create their first computer animations, games and 3D virtual worlds as they learn basics of computer programming. They use a software environment developed at Carnegie Mellon (called Alice) to create 3D virtual worlds and animations, a blocks-based programming tool. In the process, they will gain insights into methodologies and perspectives of computing software design, recognize the importance of being able to make clear arguments, evaluate them using the collected evidence as well as communicate ideas clearly when working collaboratively.
