I took the liberty into researching it for myself and found this:

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/awt/Button.html

to summarize, it seems like a way to give a "button" three functions, one as it is visually, one that has input focus, and a visual when the button is pressed, which activates some sort of action.

It seems pretty useful for our nifty projects, but I feel it's way out of the scope of our class, as much as I would like to use it.

Yes, there are other more complex ways of doing Graphics with Java, including using buttons & text boxes & such.  You'll get to use these if you take CSC 212.  They are out of scope for this class... just stick to the DrawingPanel!
