I found the example of how to add a value very helpful.

<label for="indoor"> 
  <input id="indoor" value="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Indoor 
</label>
<label for="outdoor"> 
  <input id="outdoor" value="outdoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor">Outdoor 
</label>

I recommend reading the challenge carefully and trying to code without copying the videos. The videos help less and less as the curriculum goes on.
