This paper discussed how teachers were taught Alice during the summer workshop at Duke in 2008, and how they later integrated Alice into their lesson plans in all subjects. There was also a kids camp held that summer for students to learn Alice, and the researchers found that the students were able to apply very valuable concepts relating to both Alice and computer science in general when building their own world in Alice during their free time at the camp.
