Hi!My name is Grace and I arrived here this morning at Alice in Computationland and this is my webpage
talking about my Adventures in Computationland!
My First Day
introducing ourselves, we started to create our websites. It was harder
than I thought it would be,but I did find some really cute pictures! At
first, we made our websites using nano, but then we switched to
KompoZer. Dr. Kumar came too.He specializes in chemical engineering,but
today he talked about fluid mechanics. Fluid mechanics are the
mechanics of fluids and gases. THe food is also really good. We had
pizza for lunch and the we also had snacks.

The Second Day
We did a lot of things other than our websites today . A guy named
Shawn W. Walker came to talk about how he stimulates(mimics)reality
using a computer program. He also designs micro swimmers for drug
delivery.We also started using a computer program called Scratch, which
helps you make games and stories. Lunch was really good too(as always).
Here is my first scratch: a hurricane evacuation game!!!
We also got to make our own games,but mine isn't quite done. It should be done by tomorrow though.
The Third Day(Wednesday)
Today 2 speakers,Patrick Lamont and Sarah Chavez came and talked about
their jobs in electronic arts(making video games). They have 26
locations worldwide!Their company(EA)has also been in buisness since
1982. The food was good( as always )too. Today we started using alice
3,which is kind of like Scratch 2. My game on Scratch is not done
yet ,but here it is:my game Today we also did our interviews!!!!!
Also,to practice doing stuff on iMovie,we made our own practice
interviews with other people or....... pieces of
paper?Anyway here's mine:interview with a piece of paper.
The Fourth Day(Thursday)
Today at the beginning of the day ,a few people presented teir
webpages.Our guest speaker today was Dr. Jesse, who works in
experimental music and Digital Media. He works with a thing kind of
like Scratch,except with music ,called Max. He also made an app for
iPhones and tablets. We got to go upstairs to look at a project he did
called the Humming Mississippi.It was really cool because the sounds
were transferred from the mississipi into music. We also had fajitas
for lunch,which was probubly my favorite lunch since I came here. We
also got to make a video on alice so people who didn't have alice at
home could see what you can do with alice.
Here's my video:alicedocumentary
I had to leave early to go to the orthidontist ,sadly. All in all, today was awesome -even if I did have to leave early.
The Fifth Day (Friday)
It's the last day!!!I can't believe Alice camp is almost over. I don't
think we will be going to the dairy store since it's raining but it's
sure to be a good day.But look!! Ithas cleared up over the last few
hours so we might just be able to!!!I'm really going to miss everyone
