• From , drag Set y Speed inside the space_bar() event.
  • Replace the number in the .set_y_speed() command with down_count.
  • Change the name in front of the command to ball.

Now the ball's y speed is set to the number of times the down key was pressed (the value of down_count).

  • Test your code by clicking Run and using the left arrow key, down arrow key, and space bar to shoot the ball.
