Three weeks in programming class were spent in the 3D world of Canegie-Mellon’s program called Alice. It was interesting, but honestly, I was working hard to keep up. Being a hands on artist and having grown up before the era of 3D gaming, etc. much of this is taking some getting used to.
This was the project I made for this course: basically the cat meows, which startles the cow, who kicks the chicken, who is caught by the scarecrow, scaring a frog into leaping causing the chicken to fly off the screen. The cat, scared by all the ruckus, runs to the barn, which opens as he arrives. I did this with my nieces and nephews in mind.
All because of a cat’s meow…
The only thing that saved me in this class is the 100% I got on most of the tests. I understood the concepts, executing them was a bit more tricky but I pulled off an A for the final grade.
