We're putting on a Raspberry Jam in Newhaven so that people can come and get involved and find out more about the Pi, and see some of the projects that people are making with them in Newhaven and beyond.
There will be Raspberry Pi’s for people to get their hands on during the event, and plenty of people on hand to chat to about what to do with them!
Please bring your projects along and show them off :)
Pre registration required (it's free).
Under 16s need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
If bringing a project to show please bring a power extension lead. WiFi is available in the centre.
The Raspberry Pi is a small, affordable, computer which teaches people about problem solving, computing and lets them build all kind of amazing projects. Raspberry Jams are events organised by the volunteer community of Raspberry Pi makers for people to share knowledge, learn new things, and meet other Pi enthusiasts. They’re a great way to find out more about the Raspberry Pi and what you can do with it, and to find like-minded people.
Who can come?
Anyone. There’s no lower or upper age limit, and no prior knowledge is required. Jams regularly get under 8s and over 60s attending.
Do I need to know any programming?
No. If you want to learn to code, we can help.
Do I need any equipment?
No. We will provide Raspberry Pi setups and accessories. Feel free to bring your own too.
Can I buy a Raspberry Pi from you on the day?
We will not have anything available to buy on the day, but we can recommend distributors.
Can I drop my kids off and pick them up at the end?
No. Children under 16 must be supervised at all times. Adults supervising children must order a ticket.
I can’t get there for the 11am start. Is that ok?
That’s fine. You can come and leave as you please.
I ordered a ticket but now I can’t make it. What do I do?
If you go in to your eventbrite account and view your order, you can cancel it to allow someone else to take your place.
Are there more events like this?
We intend to run regular events following this one. There are other Raspberry Jam events which run all over the UK and beyond. See a full listing at www.raspberrypi.org/jam
