In this video, you will program a function,
so you can make the android do all of the actions
without repeating the same code over and over.
You could program each animation with switch costume blocks
and repeat loops, but that would result
in a long and difficult code stack.
Save yourself time and effort
by building a function instead.
Functions allow you to reuse code stacks
each time you create an animation.
You might use each animation several times in your story,
so you'll make a function or a new block for each animation.
This example will make a new block for the happy animation,
but you'll make a new block for each animation
in the starter project you chose.
Click the make a new block button.
Name the block something appropriate for your animation.
Great, that creates a new block in the menu
and a define block in the script area.
Code you add under the define block
will run each time the new block is used.
To make the android animate, drag the switch costume
and repeat loop code stack you already built
to the define block.
Now, you can use the new block anywhere in your project
to make that animation happen.
Place the new block in the story wherever it makes sense.
Try it out.
Great, the android can do this new animation
in just one block now
and that makes it really easy to reuse.
Now it's your turn.
Create and name one block for the first part
of your android story.
Drag the code you already built into the define stack.
Then, use the new block you created,
under the one flag clicked stack
to make your android speak and animate.
