Hi there! You're doing great, but you've gone a bit above and beyond here. These challenges require that you do exactly as they say. It's a great idea to never do anything more than they ask for. The challenge asks for one set of script tags, but you have two. The extraneous script tags link to a file named script.js which likely doesn't exist in this context. The challenge did not ask you to link to an external script file.

Removing that set of script tags causes this to pass both steps of the challenge.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thank you! That helped a bunch.
