In this talk, I explain how we can use the Alice language to easily create computer games to help us teach Computer Science and Mathematical concepts to students in a fun and engaging way. The Alice language is a very easy to learn language for handling interactive 3D graphics in virtual environments. It is available for free download at www.alice.org.
