Star Wars: programma una storia Hi I'm Kathleen Kennedy and I'm the producer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Today you'll be working with one of our stars, BB-8. BB-8 is a spherical droid. Everything he does and every movement that he makes is controlled by computer software. Computer science impacts every industry, from marketing to health care to film. Hi, I'm Rachel Rose. In the next hour, we're going to build our own Star Wars game that will teach you the basic concepts of programming. Your screen is split into three parts. This middle area is the toolbox and each of these blocks is a command that BB-8 can understand. The white space on the right is called the work space and this is where we're going to build our program. If I drag the moveLeft(); block to our workspace, what happens? And what if I want BB-8 to do something after the moveLeft(); block? If you ever want to delete a block, just remove it from the stack and drag it back into the toolbox.
