Congratulations on making an awesome personalized animation that you can share with your friends.

Throughout this club, you've learned how to create animations using computer science.

Animation is just a small part of what you can do with computer science.

Take a look at how these computer scientists used their skills to make awesome things.

Kelechi Anyadiegwu created Zuvaa, an online marketplace for African fashion brands.

Vanessa Larco is a Mobile Technology Manager.

She's worked on Xbox Kinect, Facebook games for Playdom and even started her very own education apps company.

Halle Tecco founded Rock Health which supports entrepreneurs who want to improve healthcare through technology.

Jon Gosier started Appfrica which helps companies do business and solve problems in Africa.

As you can see, you can make the world a better place in many ways using computer science.

You can continue learning computer science after this CS First club ends.

In high school, you may have the opportunity to take another computer science class.

In Exploring Computer Science, you'll explore other things that you can program, including websites and robots!

In CS Principles, you can use any programming language, including Scratch, to solve many real world problems.

In AP Computer Science, you'll learn a text based programming language and get a head start on all the same concepts you'll encounter in a college class.

In college, you can specialize in something that interests you.

Like digital art, human-computer interaction or technology in music.

But, you don't have to go to college to be a great computer programmer.

Many computer programmers teach themselves how to code using online resources like Codecademy, General Assembly and Khan Academy.

You might even have the opportunity to participate in a coding workshop in your community.

With the motivation and persistence you've grown in CS First, you're well on your way to becoming a great computer scientist.

In the final activity of CS First Animation, you'll build your own animated studio logo to add to the beginning of your projects.

See you next time!
