Welcome back, Jason.

Thanks.

How did coding your commercial go today?

It was really cool, check it out.

Hey, that's great.

Thank you.

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 and find out how technology inspires her fashion design.

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?

(pop music)

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 future fashion, I think it's essential to know a little bit about code.

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.

(upbeat music)

Maddy has a ton of ideas.

She would be a great friend to start a company with.

She would.

Keep bouncing your ideas off your friends, who knows what you'll come up with!

Next club, you'll create an interactive digital scrapbook.

See you next time at Google CS First Friends.

Have fun creating And coding Bye guys!
