The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
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.
