Stafford Raspberry Jam and Code Club Mashup
Thursday, February 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
We’re delighted to be joining with Stafford Library and Stafford Raspberry Jam for a Jam meets Code Club mashup on Thursday 16th February at the new Stafford Library Innovation Centre.
It’s a family-friendly event – everyone is welcome. There will be hands-on coding and digital making activities for children and adults to participate in:
– get inspired
– learn with the Code Club resources and find out how to join or start a club in your area;
– get hands-on with the Raspberry Pi computer.
– share ideas and meet like-minded people.
– have fun!
We’ll be running a few structured Code Club and Raspberry Pi workshops – we’ll announce full details closer to the date of the event.
We will have some Raspberry Pi kits available for our prepared informal activities. Please bring your own too. Experts from the Code Club and Raspberry Pi community will be on hand to help.
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.
We will provide snacks and drinks for attendees. Alternatively, there are local shops and cafes nearby.
Start and end time
The event will open at 6pm and an opening talk will start proceedings. The rest of the day will be largely unscheduled, and will close at 8pm.
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.
