Event Details

The OCR Raspberry Jamboree 2014

'Family Hack Day'

We invite you, your friends and family to join us for our fun-filled family hack day at The Faculty of Education, Edge Hill University, Ormskirk.

The theme is Play-Hack-Share. In the morning we aim to show you some of the amazing things you can create with a Raspberry Pi computer then we ask you to work in teams throughout the rest of the day to solve one of our hack day challenges. The challenges will be centred on games development with Scratch, software development with Python, hardware hacking and robotics with devices like Pi Face.

Expect to learn lots from others and have fun solving problems and challenges together. 

We expect all tickets to sell out in advance of the event, so make sure to book you and your team a ticket. There is a document with more information here and arrangements for the day.
