Hello i have a questions about variables, i want to create a variable so when they choose a student, it sets the shape of that student. basically what i want is for them to use the arrow to control the student and then change shape according to what student they choose

Hi Julio,

Who is "they"? How would "they" choose?

Is this what you want:

You want the user (of your project) to choose a shape for a turtle. You want the user to choose that shape by pressing a key.

Why do you think you need a variable?

Project attached.
