5th Day at Class

Todays class was good. We went over concepts that we went over in previous classes. We learned about blogging and how to use the WordPress website to login and to submit blogs. We were given a possible reason as to why Alice wasn’t working on some of the computers. We were given an assignment to find out how did Haiku relate to our classes. This is what I came up with, “I think I know how it relates to class. In a haiku poem, there is a set guideline or way to write the poem. In programming, there is also a set way to write the program. So in a way, programming is like poetry. Both programmers and poets have to “create” what they want their peice to do, but have to do so within the confinements of the language(haiku, java, alice, etc.), and they use creativity to do so.” We came up with I’m looking forward to next class.

Thursday November 18, 2010- Youth AppLab

Today is the    5th    day of the youth aapplab and we learned about Alice .Alice is very fun and I understand it today before the other students got in I was making my own little story. I was supprised at first because I thought it would take me a while to learn about Alice.

So far the youth applab is funish

4th Day

Today was another informative day. We went over some of the topics that was covered in the previous classes. We went over the Alice program and went through a tutorial and played around with Alice to get a feel for it. The only unfortunate negative about today’s class was the fact that some of the computers couldn’t run Alice properly. So I moved to another computer and Alice worked on there. Other than that little problem, class was great. I’m looking forward to next class.

3rd Day

Again, I had an awsome day today. We reviewed the last class to make sure we remembered what we were taught. After that, we met Mr.Marco. Once he was finished speaking, we were given an assignment to write a program in english. The program was supposed to explain to someone how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. We also met some more students at howard. They gave their insight in the field of computer science. Overall, I liked the class today, and I’m looking forward to next class.
