Hull Raspberry Jam, Saturday 25th June

Great to see the Raspberry Jam community growing in Hull.

This weekend we welcomed over 40 people into Malet Lambert School, on a sunny Saturday morning, to share and learn together using Raspberry Pi.

New collaborations forming, and family learning challenges extending, as teams expand with added experiences and programming snippets from others.

One of our workshops centred around using the Invent With Python resources to play and hack games together.

With a community of young digital makers, adult programmers and developers, inventors, teachers and parents, we see exciting projects emerging from our introductory hands-on workshops.

Shared experiences and ideas can quickly develop with those connections and project boxes of kit and gubbins at the jam.

Examples above from one of our younger members, who has used what she already knows about project possibilities with Python to author interactive fiction stories.

Sharing Lord of the Rings adventures leads her to animation tinkering with one of our Sense Hats.

And as we hear about another group using sensors on the hat to control their hacked squirrel from the first workshop, the snowball effect on ideas continues.

Personal projects still continue, making use of on-site Q&A and extra kit.  Game making with Scratch and then developing controllers.

Or exploring Jon’s tweeting selfie cam idea and pledging to start your own build:

Connecting sensor modules with Flotilla from Pimoroni led to ideas, inventions and conversations about Raspberry Pi and the internet of things.

And adventures with Sphero got more interactive as our youngest member quickly got used to the interface and we tried to jump 🙂

Seems like the idea of robot building, and a day out to see even more robots, is appealing to more than just our members who have highlighted 1st April 2017 on the calendar and started making already.

Look out for Team @HullRaspJam visiting PiWars in Cambridge!
