Welcome back, Jason.
How did coding your commercial go today?
It was really cool, check it out.
Hey, that's great.
In today's project
we used an important computer science concept, broadcast.
Broadcast allows one sprite
to send a message, or a cue, to other sprites
in your project.
And today we were all business innovators.
You imagined a company that you
and a friend could start together,
came up with a product,
and created a commercial to pitch your idea.
I hope you and your friend had a great time
imagining your company.
I certainly enjoyed brainstorming snowman flag
with you, Taylor.
Snowman's flag, it's awesome.
Check out this video of Maddy Maxey

Recently I was having a conversation with a friend
who was like,
"What if cashmere sweaters didn't shrink in the wash?"
And it's like this shouldn't be a problem
that we're making clothing after you buy it.
What if clothing and luxury fibers
didn't shrink in the wash?
What if we had clothing that regulated
your temperature at all times?
What if we had tracking devices on our clothing
so I couldn't lose things anymore?
My name is Maddy Maxey, I live in New York City.
I'm 20-years-old and I work at the intersection
of fashion and technology.
As far as working in the fashion industry,
things really got exciting when I was around 16.
I got scholarship for school from Teen Vogue
and then I interned that spring
that taught me to figure for their runway show.
And I realized that there's this whole industry
surrounding the making of garments.
In order to dream big in the field of
I think it's essential to know a little bit
In the future, clothing will be fully responsive
to our bodies.
When my body's getting warm, the clothing cools it down.
When I'm cold, it warms it up.
As it shift from day to light, my clothes may illuminate.
The building blocks of all of these innovations
are having an understanding of code.
I meet a lot of people who are starting fashion companies
and will be like,
"Oh, I need somebody to build my website."
And I always respond,
"Well, why don't you learn to build it yourself?"
And generally answers like,
"Oh, I'm not good at code." "I'm not good at math."
You know, "I'm not good at all of these things."
And it's not really a question of what you're
good or bad at.
It's a question of what you want to learn.
I firmly believe that if you get involved with code now,
you'll be able to help build the future
of the fashion industry.
Maddy has a ton of ideas.
She would be a great friend to start a company with.
Keep bouncing your ideas off your friends,
who knows what you'll come up with!
