Event description

Description

We're back! The Milton Keynes Raspberry Jam returns and we're still at The National Museum of Computing, home of the Pi's great-great-great-grandma, Colossus.

Raspberry Jams are social events held all over the world where people who are interested in Raspberry Pi come together to share their knowledge and learn new things as well as meeting other Pi fans.

This event is an informal, social show-and-tell. Made something cool? Come and show it to us all; share your knowledge and experience. Previously we've shown robots, musical gadgets, virtual reality and Pi-operated Enigma machines.

Nothing to show? Don't know a Raspberry Pi from a Strawberry Crumpet? No matter, this event is for you to learn about these remarkable computers and to eliminate any technofear you may have. Want to learn to code? Work with kids and need some support? Come along.

We'll be in the meeting room of The National Museum of Computer in Bletchley Park from 10am onwards on the 15th July.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope. Young uns' very welcome and encouraged.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is available on-site. We're only a two-minute walk from Bletchley rail station (Euston line). Bletchley bus station is about a 15 minute walk.

What can I bring into the event?

You're welcome to bring your amazing Pi project, we'd love to see it. If it's something large or has unusual requirements, please get in touch beforehand as we don't have an enourmous space. If you've nothing to bring, don't let that deter you!


Can I plug stuff in?

Short answer, yes.


Can I solder something?

We're still working out the details on this. Hopefully, but don't count on it.


Can I sell something?

Not this time, but we hope have a mini marketplace at subsequent Jams.


I don't know much about computers but am curious about the Pi. Is this for me?

Yes! One of the goals of Raspberry Jams is to share knowledge and insipre confidence. We were all noobs once.


How's the accessibility?

The National Musuem of Computing is a single-story building. Where there are steps, ramps are available.


Is there food and drink available?

TNMoC has a small café that sells drinks, snacks and sandwiches subject to availability. Open from noon.


Does the ticket include entrance to the rest of the museum?

No. TNMoC is a charity that receives no goverment or lottery funding. We'd encourange you to see the rest of the museum after the Jam, but request that you pay the (incredible reasonable) entrance fee.
