Congratulations on coding your very first program in CS First animation.

This is your final video of this activity.

It will wrap up this activity and preview the next club session.

In this project, you animated a monster's feelings using functions.

Functions allow computer scientists to make robust code simple and easy to read and use.

Computer scientists and animators like you have to be creative and innovative.

Members of the Google Doodle team use their creativity every day to build animations that are enjoyed by millions of people all around the world.

Coming up with Google Doodle ideas actually comes from all over the place.

It comes from not only the doodlers themselves, which is us, but it also comes with other people who work at Google, and our users from all around the world.

And then we try to find that suggestion, and solve that as a creative problem in the most exciting way that we can manage to do.

We basically just try to celebrate anything that's techie and fun and geeky and artistic.

Many Google Doodles are interactive, and allow Google users to create their own music, play games, and draw.

(joyful music)

Each year, Google invites students from kindergarten to 12th grade to submit their own doodles.

The winner has his or her doodle featured on the homepage, after it is animated by the Google doodle team.

They also get a college scholarship, and other prizes.

How cool is that?

This year, the winning student is Mateo Lopez, from South San Francisco- (crowd cheers)

Next session, you will create a storyboard with four panels.

The four panels represent the four typical parts of a story.

The introduction, rising action, falling action, and conclusion.

While you are waiting for your fellow club members to finish the wrap up, take a moment to write a shoutout.

Until then, go animate your world.

See you next time.
