Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a teaching tool for introductory computing. It uses 3D graphics and a drag-and-drop interface to facilitate a more engaging, less frustrating first programming experience.
Alice is a 3D programming environment for teaching kids introductory computing. It's free (of course), and is sponsored by Carnegie Mellon, so it's high quality. If you have a child interested in computing, this is a great place to start.
