Activity: Extend: Update Score

EXTEND—STEP 5: One final step! We need to update our scoreboard every time there's a basket.

  • In , drag in Update Display inside your collision event and inside your if statement.
  • Your .update() command should be indented a total of 8 spaces.
  • Finally, change the variable name inside the parentheses from my_var to score.
  • You're done! Click Run, and see how many baskets you can make!
