'Pizza and Pi' Raspberry Pi Raspberry Jam meetup for 11-16s in London
Thursday, 3 January 2013 from 13:30 to 16:00 (GMT)
NB: 11-16s tickets now sold out. If you still want one, please join the waitlist as some tickets may come available due to cancellations.
Got a Raspberry Pi lately?
- Want to come along to a demo from the makers of Raspberry Pi?
- Want to see a few demos of the clever things your new low-cost computer can do?
- Want to join a range of workshops to learn about how you can use your new device for gaming, programing or building stuff?
- Spent all your money and want this to be free?
Then today's your lucky day!
Working with those nice people at Mozila (makers of Firefox) and Raspberry Pi, we've organised a free Raspberry Pi Raspberry Jam meetup in Central London on Thursday the 3rd January 2013.
Here are the rules:
- Tickets are free, but each 11-16 year old is charged £5 to book the ticket. We will give you this £5 back on the day as long as you turn up (see below for the explanation of why we are doing this)
- All 11-16 year olds must bring a parent or guardian with them (there's a boring legal reason for this) - anyone who doesn't book a ticket for themselves and their parent / guardian won't be able to come in
- There is also a limited number of places for school teachers.
- If you book a ticket, you really must come along. Places are very limited and we'd like to be sure that we fill them all. If you really can't come at the last minute, please log in to Eventbrite.co.uk and cancel your ticket.
What you will need to bring:
You will need the following:
- A Raspberry Pi (some will probably be available to buy on the day - tbc)
- An SD card with a Raspberry Pi operating system pre-loaded (some will probably be available to buy on the day - tbc)
- A keyboard & mouse
- A HDMI cable
- A screen (if you can bring one of these it will guarantee that you will be able to do stuff with your Raspberry Pi - there may be a small number of screens available, but we can't promise one for everyone). If you have a laptop, it may be possible that the screen will work with your Raspberry Pi, but it's worth reading this and trying it out first.
- Demo of what the Raspberry Pi is from the people who created it
- Show-and-tell - one or two Raspberry Pi applications demoed
- Workshops on programming and gaming (to be confirmed)
See you there!
