Raspberry Jam @ Pi Towers (April)
Sat 8 April 2017, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
We're holding a regular Raspberry Jam at the offices of the Raspberry Pi Foundation! 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.
We'll be running a few structured workshops - we'll announce these with times closer to the date of the event.
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.
If you have a project you'd like to bring along, please contact the organiser at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to showcase your home projects to demonstrate what can be done with the Pi.
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 the event will close at 4.00pm.
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.
How do I get there?
Raspberry Pi's offices are on the second floor at 30 Station Road. This is 2 minutes' walk from Cambridge station. The front door will have a Raspberry Jam sign and there will be someone at the entrance to check your ticket.
Is parking available?
No public parking is available at the venue. There are various on-street and multi-story car parking options nearby, or you could use the park & ride. Cycle parking is available at the rear of the building.
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
