8. Wrap-up: Launcher Game

Transcript

Today you programed a launcher game that used variables and cloning.

By now you may have noticed that with some basic computer science knowledge, you can create a wide variety of projects to accomplish many different tasks.

Take a look at how environmental scientists use computer science.

Biologists study living organisms.

When biologists working on the human genome project wanted to sequence the human genome, they used computer science and coding to accomplish this task.

Environmental scientists use computer science to help monitor our forests, oceans and rivers.

In health care, computer science is used for everything from evaluating MRI scans to effectively collecting and storing patient data.

Fashion designers use computer science and technology to help design clothing.

Computer science is all around you.

While some computer scientists program video games or software for a living, others are using computer science to make a difference in their fields.

Take a moment to click on the share button on your Scratch project so others on Scratch can enjoy it.

Finally, show you neighbor the project you created today and have fun creating and coding.

See you next time.
