No materials for the event yet, sorry!
The Snap! Arcade combines arcade games developed in Snap! with a joystick and arcade controls housed in a physical enclosure. The hardware consists of a single-board computer such as a Raspberry Pi and a microcontroller. The MicroBlocks “Key and Mouse” library developed by Bernat Romagosa was used to communicate with the microcontroller. The basic proof-of-concept format developed has served as a framework for implementation in a number of different settings, including a high school engineering course and in a summer engineering academy for middle school girls. Different examples of arcades will be shared and demonstrated.
