Hi, i'm Abhi and this is the
story of my experiences at Alice in Computationland camp. This camp is
will teach me more about using computers and different applications.
Day 1: Monday June 9, 2014
Today in camp, we started to make our webpage. We used the html format and wrote our commands on an application called terminal. When we
were working, a guest speaker,Dr.Kumar, came in and taught us about fluid mechanics. We
watched video clips about fluid mechanics, too. After that, we worked some more. Then it was lunchtime! We got pizza and ate
it in two different rooms. I ate lunch with my new friend Lucy. After
we ate lunch, we came back into the classroom and worked more on our
webpages. We also added pictures to our webpages! Then we learned how
to change the size and color of our text. Then we worked some more
until our snacks were ready. We went to the rooms that we ate lunch
in.Then we went back and learned about the applications Cyberduck and
KompoZer. Then it was time to leave.
Day 2: June 10, 2014
Today we made online games using an application
called Scratch. It was really fun to experiment with all the
tools on Scratch. Scratch projects were really fun! We made three
scratch project today. A guest speaker, Mr. Shawn who is a
mathematician, talked to us about splitting glycerin and water
droplets. Then we ate our morning snack and continued to work on
Scratch. Then we had lunch and made even more Scratch games. We worked
until it was snacktime. After that, we continued to finish our scratch
projects. Click on the links below to see the projects. Unfortunately,

Today is our last day. :-( I'm going to miss this camp.
Luckily, i'm coming to the camp next week. Right now, we're working on
our webpages. Idon't think we're going to the dairy store because
yesterday, Ms. Kathy told us, we might go to the dairy store. Today our
webpages will be judged. I don't think i'm going to win. I want to but
i'm sure I won't.
