In this video, you'll program
the android sprite to say more about its fashion.
First, click the costumes tab.
Sprites can have multiple costumes.
To select a costume that you like
for your story, just click it.
Next, click on the scripts tab
and add another say block to your block stack.
Type in text to continue the story
and make the sprite say another statement
about its fashion sense.
Think about colors, patterns,
your favorite outfit, sneakers,
whatever it is you wanna share about fashion.
Once you've added the say blocks,
click the flag to try it out.
There are two say blocks, but the sprite
only said the text from the last one.
This kind of unexpected behavior in code is called a bug.
Computer scientists test their code frequently
to find bugs like this one, so they can fix them.
In this example, the bug happens because
the sprite says both say blocks
so quickly, you can't see them.
To make the sprite say the phrases more slowly,
click the control menu and drag out wait blocks.
Place one wait block after each say block
in your code stack.
Change the value in the wait blocks
to set how long the sprite will pause between statements.
A larger number will create a longer pause,
while a smaller one will make the pause shorter.
For example, enter a longer wait time
if you have long sentences to give your viewers
more time to read everything your android says.
Try it out.
Now the sprite waits after saying each statement.
In computer science, it often takes
more than one try to find the right solution to a problem.
Keep coding, testing, and trying solutions
until you find the one that works.
Add more say and wait blocks to continue the story.
Be creative and share what you like about fashion.
Test your code often by clicking the flag.
