Hull Raspberry Jam 23 April 2016
We can't wait to see how 'Hedgehog Watch' develops after a lady joined us to find out how those around her get so excited about Pi possibilities, and went on to scope a project herself.
It also seems like there's lots of interest in setting skyward ambitions from the city after hearing about one particular astro teddy!
Today's Raspberry Jam was instigated by this family robot project, which we saw in all it's flashing LED glory during our Pi-share time:

Robotic inspiration from Jon and examples of other digital making projects from the group also led to over 30 of us using those ideas and possibilities during workshop activities.
With a diverse group including novices to programming, developers, students, game makers, teachers and families, then the expertise within the spaces soon became apparent and shared.

Back up to Space with Dave sharing his school's project after attending the Skycademy training, launching their own project and then inspiring others at the Jam:
Plans, launch and follow up from Queen Margaret's School Pi in the Sky project

With grateful thanks to Malet Lambert School, as such supportive hosts, we also had a Makerspace to share other projects and activities to try.
Here are a couple of our younger digital creators who were also our lucky prize winners today.
Check out the next date for a Raspberry Jam in Hull and we'll see what they've been exploring : )
Coming back with more ideas using Pi
Thanks to everyone who came along today and helped to make this happen.
Amazing teamwork :)
