Welcome to iTapArcade where we provide creative ways to learn how to code based on creating arcade games on a variety of coding platforms like the Micro:bit, Circuit Playground Express, and Raspberry Pis. We like to demonstrate coding concepts with just LEDs and NeoPixels when possible. We like to create arcade games based on some variant of Python to teach coding. We are creating a series of arcade game projects centered around MicroPython and Circuit Python to inspire coders of all ages. Follow us on Twitter @iTapArcade so you know when we release arcade kits. Our kits provide a great platform for learning CircuitPython. Before building a STEM based game you need to start with some fundamentals when it comes to coding. We like to reference project documentation and material from adafruit.com. They are an excellent resource for fusing electronics with coding.
Current Arcade Project: STEM Arcade Basketball
You can play arcade basketball games but why not build your own and learn how to code at the same time. We are building a series of CircuitPython based STEM Arcade Basketball games leveraging a variety of combinations of CircuitPython based boards and Neopixels. Can we capture the same type of fun like the Arcade Basketball game linked below? Follow us on Twitter @iTapArcade and find out.
