A String is a sequence of characters.

A string type is more complex than a number or a boolean. Strings have a length and you can change the characters inside the string. You can also break strings apart and make new strings, or put strings together and make longer strings.

Create a string variable

let greeting = "Hello";

To create a variable that holds a string:

  1. Click Variables (in the Block drawer).

  2. Type a name for your new string variable by clicking the down arrow, then click New Variable. Then type the variable name “salutation”

  3. Drag a string block on the right side of the operator.

  4. Click "Hello" and then type a string like hello.

Your code should look something like this:

let greeting = "Hello";
