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.

If you would like your computer/robotics club to demo/talk at a future Jam, please contact us.


Teachers and students are going to love this event and if you are going to miss this event because of holidays or other commitments we strongly suggest you send someone on your behalf. If you or children aren't excited by electronics and programming when they go back to school this may well change there minds.

My wife was just telling me she'd like to visit Southend for the sea air.

I don't think she had a Raspberry Jam in mind though :(

To be honest there isn't that much to say about them but I'm sure I can fill a slot with interesting stuff :-)
