Congratulations on building your fashion poll.

When your fellow club members took your poll, you got some important insight into their preferences.

Fashion designers gather that type of information all the time through market research and use it to create designs that will appeal to their customer's tastes.

Today, use variables to store the vote count in your poll.

Variables are one of the most commonly used concepts in computer science.

If you take computer science classes in the future, you will definitely use variables again.

Today was also your first time in this club creating an application designed to collect data from users.

There are many real world applications for collecting data.

For example, scientists use data to discover new causes of disease.

Retailers use data to understand the buying habits of customers.

Governments use data about traffic patterns and electricity usage to make cities run more smoothly.

Data is just another word for information.

The more information you have, the better your knowledge and understanding of the world.

Take a look at this clip about wearable computers that collect sports performance data.

Now that you've gotten an idea of your club member's preferences, maybe you feel inspired to create something based on them.

Remember, you can continue using your Scratch account to create projects from any computer with an internet connection.

In the next club session, you will build a fashion window display while learning how to clone sprites.

Until next time, have fun creating and coding.
