Picade 10" with Pi 400

Looking to buy several Picade cabs with the 10" screen for my game programming class. We can’t source Raspberry Pi 4 w 4 gig (this seems like the minimum that will work with Scratch) but I have been able to get some Pi 400 (the unit with a keyboard). Can a Pi 400 work with the Picade?

Most likely, with some bodging, yes. Plugging the Picade Hat into the GPIO is your first big issue. This “may” work, if its long enough.

Or maybe this

or this

No mater which way you go, it’s likely not going to look pretty.
