The OCR Raspberry Jamboree 2014 





The OCR Raspberry Jamboree is our 2nd international convention sharing the educational potential of the Raspberry Pi computer. Watch some of our talks from last year here or listen to EICE Radio
  We invite you to join us in Manchester as we celebrate the 2nd birthday of the Raspberry Pi. We aim to identify and share the impact that this low-cost computer is having on education. As well as sharing the amazing potential of this device for education, we will be showing lots of practical ideas.

Last year we sold out of tickets well before the event, so make sure to book yourself a ticket while you can. Last year's event page. If you would like to sponsor our event, or lead a session, please contact us.

   Our audience on Thursday & Friday are predominantly teachers, educators, STEM abassadors as well as those who want to support Computing education.They will be looking for solutions to make the Raspberry Pi accessible.
  We particularly want to encourage those with an interest in education to attend to discover exactly how they can use this device to inspire children to engage with computing. As well as a host of inspirational speakers, projects and classes, we aim to share effective Jam-making practice
  The Thursday & Friday of our OCR Raspberry Jamboree will take place at the prestigious Manchester Central conference venue which we are sharing with the Education Innovation Conference & Exhibition.
