A Raspberry Pi Jam is a user group of people interested in developing the use of the Raspberry Pi. This could include hobbyists, developers, teachers, students and more.
During the Raspberry Pi Jam you will be able to find out about the sorts of things you can do with the Raspberry Pi, see demonstrations of what different people have been up to and get help with Pi problems you might have.
You do not need to have a Raspberry Pi to come to a meeting
If you do have a Raspberry Pi, please bring along your HDMI to VGA adapter.
Hopefully we might also have a speaker or two.
The Computing at School group seeks to promote computing as a discipline in schools and to support teachers keen to engage with computing in their classrooms. This launch meeting of a Hertfordshire hub is an exciting opportunity for teachers in the region to get together and
The “Computing At School” group (CAS) is a membership association adminstered by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT and supported by Microsoft Research and other industry partners. It was created to support and promote the teaching of computer science and other computing disciplines in UK schools. Our membership is broad, and includes teachers, examiners, parents, university faculty, and employers.
CAS was born out of our excitement with our discipline, combined with a serious concern that our brightest students are being turned off computing by a combination of factors that have conspired to make the subject seem dull and pedestrian. Our goal is to put the fun back into computing at school.
