Description

We will be taking part in the 2019 Big Birthday Weekend on the 2nd of March 2019.

Come and celebrate with us by getting your free ticket, learning how to code and make some new projects.

Plus, every birthday party needs birthday cake (donation welcome).

We also will have tea and coffee avaliable, please try to bring your own reusable cup though.

Again, our Jam’s are open to everyone, young or old, beginners or experts, basically come down and celebrate with us.

You can read the Raspberry Pi Foundation's safeguarding policy here (http://rpf.io/safeguarding), in addition we also have the safeguarding policy on our website here (https://yorkpijam.com/index.php/safeguarding)

Workshops:

Traffic Light Coding – Learn to code in Python and control traffic lights on the Raspberry Pi. Quite a challenging workshop and people may need to buddy up with others as we only have a limited amount of traffic lights.

Coding For Beginners – Learn the basics of coding and code in Scratch, a child friendly programming language. This workshop is great for beginners and people who are unsure on what coding is.

Make your own Cookie Clicker game in Scratch – Learn how to make your own “cookie clicker” style incremental game in Scratch 3.0. Cookie clicker games involve pressing something repeatedly and then buying upgrades to increase your clicking power. They all have no ending. We’ll have various scratch based examples ready for you to look at and learn from as well as code snippets and explanations at the start of the workshop.

One More Workshop To Be Confirmed

Talk:

Luke, from York Pi Jam, will be talking about the benefits of learning Scratch. This talk is perfect for parents/guardians who want to know why we should be encouraging children to learn to code. This talk is ticketed but it is free. When you sign in at the venue on the day ask for a talk ticket.
