    (Miral, Dancer and Software Developer, Created
    iLuminate) - Hi!
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    My name is Miral Kotb and I’m a dancer,
    software developer, and creator of iLuminate.
  • 0:16 - 0:22
    So, computer science relates to creativity
    in numerous ways.
  • 0:22 - 0:23
    Immeasurable, really.
  • 0:23 - 0:28
    I mean, once you have the ability to write
    software you can put ideas into anything.
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    I do it with light suits.
  • 0:31 - 0:36
    There's so much you can do once you have the
    tools to write software, and the possibilities
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    are really endless.
  • 0:39 - 0:44
    Over the next hour, you’re going to get
    started with computer science by programming
  • 0:44 - 0:45
    your own dance party!
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    We’ve assembled some hit music and a team
    of great dancers for you to play with.
  • 0:49 - 0:56
    You’ll be using blocks of code to choose
    different dancers, change their dance moves,
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    make them respond to the music, and make them
    interactive.
  • 1:00 - 1:05
    You’ll see that your screen is split into
    three main parts.
  • 1:05 - 1:07
    On the left is the play space.
  • 1:07 - 1:10
    This is where your dancers will show up.
  • 1:10 - 1:13
    This middle area is the toolbox.
  • 1:13 - 1:18
    New blocks of code will be available in this
    space as you go through the lessons.
  • 1:18 - 1:22
    The space to the right is the workspace.
  • 1:22 - 1:28
    You can drag blocks out of the toolbox and
    into the workspace to build your program.
  • 1:28 - 1:34
    The instructions for each level will be up
    here at the top of the screen.
  • 1:34 - 1:41
    If you need a hint, just click the light bulb.
  • 1:41 - 1:46
    To start off, let’s make a new dancer with
    this red block.
  • 1:46 - 1:53
    First, drag it out of the toolbox and snap
    it under this orange “setup” block.
  • 1:53 - 1:58
    This dancer is a cat and its name is “my_first_dancer”.
  • 1:58 - 2:04
    You can change the name to whatever you want
    by clicking here.
  • 2:04 - 2:10
    You can also change where the dancer appears
    in your play space with this.
  • 2:10 - 2:13
    Above the play space is a menu for picking
    out music.
  • 2:13 - 2:19
    There are a ton of songs to choose from so
    have fun finding your favorites.
  • 2:19 - 2:21
    Under the play space is the run button.
  • 2:21 - 2:26
    When you press run, you’ll see the dancers
    from your program appear in the play space
  • 2:26 - 2:31
    and the music will play.
  • 2:31 - 2:36
    [Music]
  • 2:36 - 2:37
    Try it yourself!
  • 2:37 - 2:39
    And if you’re feeling stuck, it's okay!
  • 2:39 - 2:44
    Just get up and get moving, and before you
    know it, you’ll have made your own dance
  • 2:44 - 2:45
    party.
  • 2:45 - 2:49
    So, what will you create?
