Event description

Description

We're holding a Raspberry Jam at the Google Digital Garage based at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow! It's a family-friendly event - everyone is welcome. We'll be providing coding and digital making activities for children and adults to participate in, to have fun and learn with the Raspberry Pi computer. Jams are a great way to share ideas and meet like-minded people.

Activities

We will provide Raspberry Pi kits, worksheets and everything you'll need for our prepared informal activities. Experts from the Foundation and our community will be on hand to help.

Show-and-tell

If you have a project you'd like to bring along, please feel free. We'd love to showcase your home projects to demonstrate what can be done with the Pi.

Food

We will provide a light lunch buffet for attendees. Vegetarian options will be available. Alternatively, there are local shops and cafes nearby.

Start and end time

The event will open at 10.00am and an opening talk will start proceedings. The rest of the day will be unscheduled, and will close at 4.00pm.

FAQs:

Who can come?

Anyone. There’s no lower or upper age limit, and no prior knowledge is required. Jams regularly get under 8s and over 60s attending.

Do I need to know any programming?

No. If you want to learn to code, we can help.

Do I need any equipment?

No. We will provide Raspberry Pi setups and accessories. Feel free to bring your own too.

Can I buy a Raspberry Pi from you on the day?

We will not have anything available to buy on the day, but we can recommend distributors.

Can I drop my kids off and pick them up at the end?

No. Children under 16 must be supervised at all times. Adults supervising children must order a ticket.

I can’t get there for the 10am start. Is that ok?

That’s fine. You can come and leave as you please.

I ordered a ticket but now I can’t make it. What do I do?

If you go in to your eventbrite account and view your order, you can cancel it to allow someone else to take your place.

Are there more events like this?

We intend to run regular events following this one. There are other Raspberry Jam events which run all over the UK and beyond. See a full listing at www.raspberrypi.org/jam
