It looks like you're missing the assignment operator ("=") on the top line where you initialize the "students" array.

When posting code in future, use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:   Or watch this video on code formatting.
