January Raspberry Jam in Leeds
We offered a hands-on workshop to introduce those interested (or intrigued) in programming with Python through gaming, and there were also a wide range of individual questions supported by new collaborations and ongoing sharing:
How do I know if I've got the most up-to-date OS on my SD card?
How can I use Raspberry Pi in my classroom?
What kind of activities and challenges can I offer to my students who have a range of special educational needs?
Show me how to control my radiators with a Raspberry Pi!
I've used Scratch to make games. What else can I do?
Show me what my main Christmas present can do....and help me with how I can explore.....look, it's a Raspberry Pi with an electronics kit :)
How can we support our son/daughter at home with a Raspberry Pi?
Now I've used Pygame to play and hack, how can I code my own games?
Retro Pi Challenges
What else happens at the Raspberry Jam events in Leeds?
Well, with the wealth of experience and help available building up each month, wonders never cease :)
