In today's project, you learned
an important computer science concept,
conditionals, which you used to make an interactive story.
Conditionals are really useful in interactive stories
and they're used all the time in computer science.
Here's one example from the field of healthcare.
This video shows a phone app
that helps people in poor countries
find healthcare access.
Users enter information and the app uses if else statements
to decide what healthcare services people need
and how those services can be provided to them.
If else allows healthcare workers to respond
specifically to the needs of individuals.
A healthcare app wouldn't be useful
if it recommended the same treatment to every user.
The app can also forward information along
to healthcare workers.
If the worker knows that someone doesn't have access
to clean water, they have a better idea
of what sorts of problems that person might have.
All computer programs are made
with the same building blocks you're learning in this club.
You can help save the world with code.
Next club, you will build a story starring you.
You will use everything you've learned
from the other days of this club
to tell your own story.
And again, until next time, go forth and tell your story.
