Teachers / Education
The Raspberry Pi was created to encourage children to learn about computers, programming and electronics.
Many of the programs / projects meet the requirements of the new computing curriculum being introduced from September and there are suitable lesson plans and schemes of work created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
Our workshops, talks and projects are suitable for children and beginners upwards. Programming and creating with Minecraft, music, bright LEDS and robots makes learning fun and exciting.
If you would like your computer/robotics club to demo/talk at a future Jam, please contact us.
If you would like to demo your projects, hold a talk or workshop or sell you goods at this or future Jams, we would love to meet you. Please contact us at email@example.com.
The Raspberry Jam takes a lot of organisation and work and is run by a few volunteers in their spare time.
