Make A Weightlessness Space Game With Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Use Scratch and Raspberry Pi to create a weightlessness game. via raspberry.org
In this activity, you will learn how to simulate the effects of weightlessness in space with this Scratch game, as well as computer science concepts like sequencing, looping, variables, and conditionals.
You can learn more about the forces of gravity and the effects of weightlessness, as well as more about British ESA Astronaut Tim Peake’s mission aboard the International Space Station, on the UK National STEM Centre website here.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
