1st Wimbledon Raspberry Jam at the Wimbledon Library

This is the 1st Wimbledon Raspberry Jam.

A Raspberry Jam is an event for people interested in making, creating, programming, electronics, robots and computing in education.

The event will have projects on show for inspiration, talks and workshops.

Including talks by teachers and children who are passionate about coding.

Cat Lamin has been very busy building an amazing agenda for the day. See the details below.

The workshop size is limited by the number of Raspberry Pi computers in the room and so it is essential that people pre-book. To book just email saying which workshop you wish to attend and the number of people who will be attending. We will then add you to the session and confirm your place.

Talks are drop in so no requirement to pre-book.

If you have a project you would like to bring along for the show and tell area let us know and we will allocate you a space. If you need more than one table let us know so we can make sure all exhibitors have the space they need. We'd recommend bringing extension leads and anything else you need for your project to be shown at its best. It's also good to have a handout stating what your project is and how other can build it themself.
