Yeah- I started using Alice in my classrooms quite a while ago, and found it to be a great tool for maintaining student interest while introducing basic skills such as flowcharting, the use of global vs. local methods and functions, and object interactions. Story lines, interactive games, all drew attention.
Every major project I invented for my students started as a personal quest("If I could do it, so could they").
So here I am, now retired from teaching, but still checking in to see how things are going with Randy's Dream.

Challenge to Team: Getting 3D to work in a mobile environment would be an obviously hard, but awesome invention. Students could carry their successes with them.
