In this activity, you got a chance to createa cool commercial around your favorite fitness gadget.
This allowed you to express your gadgets featuresand why so many people should buy one.
We used androids to create thisproject from the androidify website.
One of the cool things about Scratchis that you can download imagesfrom different places or websitesinto your project to personalize it,then you can upload them into your project.
Feel free to try this out in your spare timeby adding your own androids to this project.
You can always get to see us first in Scratchfrom any computer that has an internet connection,so feel free to do so if you can.
You also learned about modularization.
Computer scientists use modularizationto make their code more readable and easier to work with.
Working on a program with other computer scientist,modularization lets others code on the same projectwithout one team's work affecting the others.
Scratch users like you often use modularizationto create programs that other Scratch users can add to.
For example, in this project each dancerwas added by a different Scratch user.
You can find lots of studios by typingadd studio into the search bar and seeing what comes up.
Little Bits are small electronic modulesthat can snap together to form awesome things.

As we're growing up, we're usually taughtthat there's a very distinct separation between fields.
Design, art, engineering, business.
And sometimes you may not know what you want to door sometimes you want to do all of them.
I am Ayah Bdeir.
I'm the founder and CEO of Little Bits.
I'm an engineer and an interactive artist.
We are at Little Bits headquarters in New York Citywhere we are designing electronic building blocksfor everybody to be able to invent with.
We wanna show you that small thingscan make very big things happen.
There is a very distinct momentwhere you snap them and you realize that was all youand it's magical and suddenly a world opens up to youand these ideas start rushing into your head.
Watch how Reggie Watts uses the Little Bits modulesto create a cool synthesizer in this video.

Michael Jordan, a champion among championscertainly knows a bit about working through challenges.
Jordan's basketball career with the Chicago Bullswas the epitome of performance.
He won six NBA titles, gold medals in the Olympics,scoring titles, steals titles, MVP awards,and played an epic playoff game where he scored 38 pointseven though he was dehydrated and had a stomach virus.
Jordan never stopped working hardand he said, "I've failed over and over and over again"in my life and that is why I succeed."
Computer scientists, programmers,and everyone including MJ, will haveto fail in order to achieve success.
So keep pushing yourself and persevering everyday.
