Congratulations on creating a fashion walk project today! I hope you had a great timeand created something fun. Don't worry if you did not have enough time to finish everythingyou wanted to do. Remember, you can log in to Scratch anytime using your username andpassword to create code from any computer with an internet connection.
In today's project, you learned a very important computer science concept called "iteration"or "loops." Iteration is the process of repeating a set of computer instructions over and overagain. In creating the fashion walk, you used a “forever” block to instruct the computerto make the sprite switch costumes, walk onto the stage, pause, and walk off the stage repeatedly.
Computer science is great for automating repetitive tasks, and computer scientists frequentlyuse loops or iteration to do repetitive tasks. In the first video today, you saw how computerscience can be used to change a sprite’s appearance or clothing style, but the fashionindustry uses technology in many other ways, too! For example, in the field of wearabletechnology, computer science is used to make shoes that track steps, clothing that tracksbody temperature, sleep patterns, speed, and heart rate. When an athlete exercises, theclothing’s computer code runs a forever loop that instructs a sensor to repeatedlycheck and record his or her heart rate. Computer scientists, like you, use forever loops, oriteration, in their daily jobs as they create awesome new software and inventions that impactthe lives of millions. In the next club, you will build a StylistTool that can be used to accessorize a character or room. In this example, the Stylist toolshows a girl with accessories that can be placed, but you'll be able to customize yourtool with the accessories you want. Remember to give your Gurus or neighbors ashoutout. Until next time, have fun creating and coding.
