Fall 2022 VR videos from Programming 1 CLICK
A great semester with students in Programming 1. We used ALice 3.6 to make interactive projects that can be executed in the VR. Thank you Taylor for editing.
Spring 2022 Programming 1 Alice 3 VR projects CLICK
I am proud to sample some video of me demonstrating our Programming 1 student projects. These kids had little or no programming experience. The course was one semester and they built these cool projects. Teaching Computer Science is valuable for all people, not just programmers. We learn a lot besides just computer hacking skills.

5 minute video on Computer Science. Why do it?
This is from 2013 which is a long time ago in Computer Science development. It is relevant though especially for anyone and everyone who wonders what happens when we touch on a phone, for example.

One pager to get some background information.
This pdf from Code.org has a lot of information to get started. It is dense so maybe you want to read it after you've made a project.
