Randy Pausch helped start both Alice and the ETC, so it’s fitting to serve as the academic home for Alice at CMU and honor Randy’s legacy.

Alice is a free to download, innovative software tool that allows students who have never programmed before to easily create animations for telling stories, creating an interactive game, or making a video to share on the web.

Using 3D graphics and a drag-and-drop interface, Alice provides a more engaging, less frustrating first experience as students develop problem solving skills and learn object-oriented programming, even transitioning to the Java programming language. Alice nurtures student creativity, and is very successful in attracting women and other underrepresented groups into computer science.
