Event Details

Raspberry Pi! Micro:Bit! Arduino! Python! Scratch! Flashing lights! Robots! Digital Art!

If you’re already excited by this stuff, we’ll have loads of equipment and ideas you can explore. If none of it makes sense, but you think maybe you’d like it if it did… dip your toe in the water in this free, friendly, informal family day.


There’ll be tutorials and worksheets to wade into, demonstrations set up to explore, people to talk to about all this stuff, and a wide range of tools, components and systems to introduce yourself to. We’re keen to get families working together, solving problems and learning new skills. You don’t need to know any programming before you show up!

Who can come
Anyone. There are no age limits, though children under 16 must be supervised at all times (sorry folks, you can’t drop your kids off with us while you go and do a spot of shopping!). Please reserve a ticket for each person in your group.

At our first Jam people brought along projects they were working on, came with specific problems they were looking to solve, came because they love this stuff… or came because they’re curious and looking to get started. All are welcome!

We have a heap of Pis and other systems so there’s no need to bring your own. We won’t have anything available to buy on the day, though we can recommend suppliers.

How to get here
We’re on the main Northumbria University campus in the centre of Newcastle: walk down Northumberland Road (pedestrianised) and once you’re on the campus you’ll see an entrance to the blue building opposite Sport Central. The entrance is called The Link. Look for Jam posters, and follow signs to Think Lab. We’re on the third floor of the blue building. For more detailed directions and notes about parking and transport, please see this page.

Times, workshops, etc.
We’re not currently planning booked sessions: you’re welcome to drop in and drop out through the day or to stay as long as you like. We’ll open the doors from 10am and plan to turn the power off on anyone still hacking away at 4pm!

Want to bring something along to share?
Great! If you can let us know your plans we stand a better chance of making sure you have table space. Please drop us an email:
