Event description

Description

Preston Raspberry Jam is a diverse community of people who have been meeting in Preston every month since July 2012 to learn, discover and share the potential of Computing and the Raspberry Pi computer and share our passion for digital making and creativity.

Join in with children, adults, families and teachers from a range of backgrounds, age and experience levels to take part in some free workshops, demonstrations and discussion that focus on some of the following: Raspberry Pi computers, Arduino, Minecraft, Micro:bits, Python, Scratch etc. We positively welcome beginners of all ages who would like to learn more about computers, software, programming or hardware development. No additional equipment is required.

Please note that children must be supervised by an adult at all times.

Typical programme:

6.00-7.15pm: Session 1 - Learn or create something new in a practical hands-on session. Ideal for complete beginners or somebody who wants to improve their understanding and skills.

7.15-8.00pm: Lightning Talks - Short, ad hoc presentations. We invite all members of our community to tell us about something they've seen, discovered or been working on.

8.00-8.45pm: Session 2 - Hands On. Projects. Demonstrations. Support. Chat. Mingle.

8.45-9.00pm: Pack away and wrap up
