Exeter Raspberry Jam

Saturday 7th May

The next Exeter Raspberry Jam will take place on Saturday 7th May in the Rougemont Room at Exeter Library between 10:00 - 12:00. As usual there will be lots to do, plenty of help and advice and pis to play with, we'll also have some BBC Micro:bits and Arduinos.

This month we will be running a 30 minute workshop on using a distance sensor with your pi, there is a small charge for this (£2.50) and places are limited
so if you're interested book early!

Exeter Raspberry Jam 2nd April

A well attended jam at Exeter Library, the first we had run as 2.Times Do. No significant changes to the format or the style of the event, we may in future introduce more formal, structured sessions alongside the more informal nature of the jam.

We saw quite a few new faces as well as some regulars. Here's some work using the cam jam robot kit:

and here's a video clip of it in action:

this was being controlled from a wireless keyboard.

Someone else was exploring using Scratch to control the GPIOs and here's a distance sensor working within the Scratch environment:

We also had a couple of BBC micro:bits for people to try:

The next jam will be on Saturday 7th May - hope to see you there.
