Today was the relaunch of the Birmingham Raspberry Jam held at KESH Academy in Birmingham. With 17 Raspberry Pis and a great space to work in we welcomed over 45 participants to the event. The day was organised by myself and Jack Wearden from Birmingham University.

The workshops

We delivered 4 workshops with a range of activities, these included:

  • Introduction to Minecraft Python programming.
  • An introduction to Python and Turtle programs
  • Connecting LEDs to the GPIO and programming a traffic light and disco light sequence
  • More advanced MInecraft programming (building a 3D house)

We had a really good day delivering the sessions and judging by the feedback the participants really enjoyed it too.

While True:print “woohoo!”

Looking forward to next time
