The level opens with a video of Susman sitting down at a computer to do his homework, but he ends up getting bombarded with hurtful instant messages. Susman likened the game in that level to "whack-a-mole," as the player has to click on as many instant messages as possible.
If the player beats the game, the final scene is the bully being put in jail.
"It was just wonderful," Kail said.
Moore said the Globaloria class taught her about coding, of course, but she also learned about bullying. And after spending about five hours each week designing and researching, she said receiving the email that she was a finalist was a nice surprise
"We were floored," Moore said. "We were so excited. We'd worked so hard."
