Learn to Program Step-by-Step

Active Learning: Hello-World

Create an Alice3 world to represent you. You can choose a Starting scene by clicking the Starters tab in the Select Project window, or create a background scene using objects from the Props classes.

Next, add one person to represent you (your avatar) using the Sims people (the first 5 people in the Biped class.)

You can also add other people and animals to create a scene that represents you in some way.

Use code to have your avatar say a welcome message.

Save the Alice3 program as lastName_firstName_hello.a3p. For example mary_smith_hello.a3p

  1. Take a screen shot of the scene (with the message showing) to post in this weeks discussion.
  2. Submit the lastName_firstName_.a3p file in assignments.

Example:


This is me and my husband in my garden.
My garden isn't that big or that lush.
We both wear glasses but there aren't any in Alice.

Here is the code:
