Event Details

This event is planned to co-incide with THE RASPBERRY JAM BIG BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

Raspberry Pi Big Birthday Weekend 2018. GIF with confetti and bopping JAM balloons


6.00-9.00pm: An evening celebrating Raspberry Pi: Spend an evening with friends old and new, taking part in a range of activities related to Raspberry Pi computer and some that are not, as we celebrate the 6th birthday of the Raspberry Pi computer. Activities on offer will suit a range of experience levels, from those who have never used a Raspberry Pi to those who have worked on their own projects.

All equipment will be provided, but you can bring your own. If you have an activity that others can try, or a project to show to others, please bring it with you to the party.

Refreshments will not be provided, however you may choose to bring or organise your own.

Preston Raspberry Jam is a community of people who meet in Preston each month to learn, create and share the potential of the Raspberry Pi computer at this open, family-friendly event. You don't need to be an expert or even own a Raspberry Pi computer to attend, but our community regularly bring their projects along to show others. We also explore non-Raspberry Pi hardware & software, such as games development, robotics, drones and 3D printing. We particulary welcome beginners of all ages who would like to learn more about computers, software, programming or hardware development.

Equipment - You don't need to own a Raspberry Pi computer to attend, but we encourage you to bring your own kit along with you which may include Raspberry Pi, accessories, laptops and mobile devices. There are 12 large wall mounted screens provided in our meeting space which use a HDMI connection and provide power via USB. We will provide enough Raspberry Pi computers so that each team has at least one available to them.

If Preston is too far to travel - visit this map on the Raspberry Pi website to see if there is a BIG BIRTHDAY WEEKEND event closer to you, or organise your own:

This is a family-friendly event - we welcome people of all ages and experience levels, eg. mums, sons, dads & daughters from about 8 years and up. You don't need to own a Raspberry Pi to take part.

Raspberry Jam - is a growing global community that meet every month to support hobbyists, developers, teachers, students and families - in fact anybody that would like to put their Raspberry Pi to good use.
