I am using the draw.ss teachpack to draw the shapes. I am wondering
partially how to use the get-key-event and also if that is the direction I
should be going in order to make the list of shapes move with the arrow
keys. If I should be using get-key-event, how should I approach it?

Just to tell you, I am working on the lunar lander exercise from Section 21
of HTDP. I will then be using the arrow keys to move an object on the screen
for a VERY simple Space Invaders type game for my science project.

Thank you very much for helping
