A Raspberry Jam is a monthly event for people who want to learn a bit more about the Raspberry Pi and coding in general.
The sessions are aimed at complete beginners with more complicated challenges for those with already some Raspberry Pi experience.
All equipment is provided, so all you have to do is grab a free ticket and turn up!
Due to the huge range of experience and abilities, we don't deliver up front workshop teaching currently. Instead we provide a huge number of paper based activities that the attendees can pick from. Every month at least 1 new awesome activity is added.
If you end up having any issues, our team of expert volunteers are on hand to help out.
Some of our activities include
- Getting started with Raspberry Pi
- Hacking Minecraft Pi with Python
- Flashing LEDs with ScratchGPIO and LEDBorgs
- Introduction to Python
- Introduction to electronics
- Introduction to Raspberry Pi camera module
- Making music with Sonic Pi 2
- Exploding balloons
- Automated parent detector
- And lots more!
If you would also like to help with setup, takedown or generally walking around helping people with their Pi projects, please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass on your details.
