Here at Maker Space we’re keen on the Raspberry Pi, a tiny, incredibly cheap computer that can be used for teaching about computers and coding and used for all sorts of projects, from making a low-cost media box, to building robots that you can control over the internet. It’s pretty spiffy!
We’re helping run a Workshop at Centre for Life for everyone who’s interested and would like to know more!
Here’s the blurb:
“Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. It is intended that people all over the world will use it to learn programming.
Raspberry Jams are local user groups for the Raspberry Pi. Jams are held to support hobbyists, developers, teachers, students, children and families – in fact, anybody that would like to put their Raspberry Pi to good use. While Raspberry Jam is not endorsed, sponsored or associated with Raspberry Pi or Raspberry Pi products or services, some of our regular members are volunteers for the Raspberry Pi Foundation. At our meetings we have helpful people who can help you with everything you need to get what you want from your Raspberry Pi.
You do not need to have a Raspberry Pi to come to a meeting. In fact, not having a Raspberry Pi is an excellent motive for coming along. You will discover what you can do with a Raspberry Pi when you get hold of one!”
