Girls STEM Day By McGaughey

MURRAY, KY—Twenty of the more than 100 high school girls attending the Oct. 21 STEM (Science, technology, engineering and math) Day at Murray State University participated in the workshop on the Alice computer science teaching tool conducted by Dr. Brenda Wilson.

     Wilson, an associate professor in the MSU Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, received training on Alice at a conference at Duke University and has done a summer workshop for regional middle school and high school teachers.

     Alice was created by the late Randy Pausch, a computer-science professor at Carnegie Mellon University, to entice young students into using the computer to create animated movies and games.

      Students and their high schools included Jessica Stuart, Rachel Brummett, Leslie Klein, Kristen Coursey, Kathleen Noe and Frankie Galvin, Russellville High School; Alexas Kale, Rachell Cannady, Hunter Neel, Tierra Bradford, Shardai Catlett, Zia Crenshaw and Ebony Jones, Hopkinsville High School.
