Our team’s experience working on Alice3.1
Adithya: I had an amazing experience working with ALICE. At first I had totally got confused on what I had to do but all went well. ThIs helped me to spend my free time in a nice way. I also learned making quizzes, variables, etc. It also gave me more information about my topic Kohinoor Diamond. I thank this school for thinking I am capable of doing these things. I specially thank my teachers for giving me this opportunity.
Tejas: It was really fun! We did a project in history based on the Kohinoor diamond; we just managed to complete it in time! And in the end, it was a grand success!! I enjoyed this project very much and this project taught about how to work as a team and also taught us how to work nder pressure.
Abhinav: My experience through this ALICE CBSE Project has been exhilarating. Our group from class 7 D (Tejas Suresh, Adithya R Pai, P.Lakshmi Narayan and Raghunandan D.R) chose the topic Kohinoor diamond. This taught us a lot about teamwork and being a team. Each of us made a different scene and in the end we merged all together. My job was to create a scene telling the audience about the history of the Kohinoor diamond from the mid 16th century to present. My characters were a young historian and an old historian. I recorded my voice in two different ways, playing the voice of these two characters. I learnt many new things, while working with ALICE.I tried out new procedure, got everything in place and ended up creating a huge 2.4 MB file (with sound recording). We ended up editing it. I faced many problems such as errors, bugs, etc. Through the last 2 months of utter enjoyment I had lots of fun creating my project and look forward to doing it again 1 year later in the 8th standard.
Lakshminarayan: This is my experience in the ALICE project. Our topic was about ‘the Kohinoor diamond of India’. I felt it very interesting to make a project based on the diamond. My part in the animation was about the knowledge which the Historian 3 knew. While doing the research on my part, I learnt many new things based on the diamond. It took me nearly 4 days to find the information and start my project. In the start I faced problems in doing the animation because I was not thorough with my information. After some time I got a hang of it. I started working faster. My friends were also doing well. It took me nearly 3 weeks to complete my project. Thanks to my subject teachers who let us do our project. I also stayed back in school for some days to complete my project. We also had to prepare our Power Point Presentation .I took the in charge to do it .So I asked my friends how to go about it. Quickly I started my PPT and started working on it. In about 7 days I completed my PPT. I showed it to my friends and they liked it. Once it was completely done I showed it to our teacher. He liked it very much. This was my wonderful experience in doing this project.
Raghunandan: Our project was about the Kohinoor Diamond. It was how the Kohinoor Diamond went from one king to another. I was doing the part of the Historian 4 who tells about how the Diamond went from Babur to Ala-ud-din Khilji. I was so exited in the starting because I did not know much about Alice and did not have the information about my topic. So my friend Tejas Suresh helped me in doing this project and at last I finished my project and I learnt so much about the Kohinoor Diamond and I enjoyed a lot doing Alice.
