What if you had an easy way to add ‘hackability’ to hardware with a student-friendly, easy-to-learn programming platform? Using Snap! and Python, it’s easy to code hardware extensions for practically anything that connects to a computer. This presentation discusses the process of making a hardware extension for Snap!, and the many possibilities for combining hardware platforms with the visual metaphor of Scratch.
