Building on the foundational understanding students developed in the previous lesson, this lesson introduces the key concept of Events. While students used the “when flag clicked” event in the previous lesson, this lesson more explicitly introduces the role of events in programming and allows students to explore. This lesson is the first time that students are working with more than one sprite, which can be confusing. Encourage students to check which sprite they have selected as a first debugging step.
