Raspberry Jam Event

Hi all,

We've got an event for you. Raspberry Jam is a chance for you to find out more about Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Pi is a computer system that teaches coding and a good understanding of a computer. Open to all ages!

Date & Time: 27th Feb 10am – 4pm.
Where: UCS Waterfront Building Ipswich


 The Raspberry Pi computer has the ability to interact with the outside world, and has been used in a wide array of digital maker projects, from music machines and parent detectors to weather stations and tweeting birdhouses with infra-red cameras. We want to see the Raspberry Pi being used by kids all over the world to learn to program and understand how computers work.

Raspberry Jams are events organised by the community to share knowledge, learn new things, and meet other Raspberry Pi enthusiasts. They’re a great way to find out more about the Raspberry Pi and what you can do with it, and to find like-minded people.

Raspberry Events

This is the second event for the showing the Raspberry Pi computer and its impact on a wide range of people here in Ipswich. The first was held at the 3rd floor Carnegie Room in the Ipswich County Library in 2015 and restricted to 100 people and almost sold out. The Ipswich Jam organisers have been putting the word out about the second event and Andy’s connections with the Atrium Space at the University in Ipswich lead to the Waterfront Building as the home for the second Raspberry Jam in Ipswich. This event is for children, young adults and older people looking for inspiration and even motivation to make stuff happen with the Raspberry Pi.
