Congratulations on coding the "Texting Story" project.
In this activity, you imagined the future of your friendship
and created a text message story.
You learned about procedures and how to use the "Make a block" button in Scratch to create
your own Scratch procedure.
You also saw that procedures can save you a lot of time and code!
Computer science can be used to build all types of projects,
like creating a story,
build a game, or making an art project, or detecting cancer in cells and monitoring health.
Check out this video about the different uses of computer science.
As we're growing up, we're usually taught that there's a very distinct
separation between fields. Design, art, engineering, business.
And sometimes you may not know what you want to do.
Or sometimes you want to do all of them.
I am Ayah Bdeir. I am the founder and CEO of LittleBits.
I am an engineer, and an interactive artist.
We are at LittleBits headquarters in New York City
where we are designing electronic building blocks for everybody to be able to invent with.
We want to show you that small things can make very big things happen.
There is a very distinct moment where you snap them and realize that was all you,
and it's magical. and suddenly, a world opens up to you,
and these ideas start rushing into your head.
That's the same moment that happens when you're coding.
When you put your first few lines of code together and suddenly it says "hello world."
That moment is indescribable, and it gives you such empowerment
and such confidence.
Everyone wants to play. Everyone wants to invent. Everyone wants to create,
and code really allows you to do that.
It doesn't matter whether you're a girl or boy. It doesn't matter whether you're 6 or 22.
All of us have these same tools available to us,
and code is a very powerful one of them that can enable you to do
whatever you want to do better.
Today, and in the future, you have
the chance to design the world around you through code.
Tell your own story, build your own game, or show off your personality to the millions
of users on Scratch.
and today you learned skills that will help you along the way.
Imagine what your future looks like!
What role could computer science play in it?
Until next time, have fun coding and creating!
