Hi my name is Sarah and today was the first day of Alice in Computationland camp here at LSU. We stared off by Mrs. Kathy introducing the camp, she told us how we would be making a website, making a video, and using the alice program. After she told us about it we all had to introduce ourselves to the other camp members. After that we started creating our website. We used this program called komodo edit to create the page. We had to pick out a background that we could use for the site. Next, we had a few guest speakers come and talk to us about what they are researching in and what it had to do with science. After the guest speakers finished talking we all went eat a snack then continued on the website. Today was a good start to the week.
Today is the second day of Alice Camp. We started off the day by using a program called kompozer instead of using the komodo program we used yesterday. This program is a whole lot easier than komodo. It is easier because you do not have to type all kinds of codes like in komodo. So after we finished working a little on our webpages we moved on and started using the program Alice 2.2. It is a very interesting program. We all got to create a virtual world. I made a virtual farm world then after I was done I created a second video which is about Alice and the rabbit. If you would like to see my videos click on the picture links at the bottom of the page. Well about halfway through the Alice tutorials we had a guest speaker, Dr. Allison. He is a professor here at LSU and studies different pitches and frequencys. He also composed different music. He showed us some of the things he helped to make and even passed one around the class. It was very interesting. After he talked we finished and recorded our worlds. Towards the end we tried to upload all our pages but some of us didnt finish.Today was very fun!
Today is the third day of camp. We started off the day by finishing the uploading of our webpages. We all finished up our sites. After Mrs. Kathy told us about a program you can use to make your own legos. If you want to see my creation you can click on the lego block below. After that we had two guest speakers. Mrs. Juana told us about different electronics. She even passed Transistors around the class. She traveled all around the world. She was originally born in Madrid and moved to the US for more opportunity. Our second guest speaker was Mr. Param. He told us all about astronomy and cells. My favorite part was watching the video that showed you up close up at the galaxy and human skin. Today I learned a lot.
