Birmingham Raspberry Jam
Today was the relaunch of the Birmingham Raspberry Jam held at KESH Academy in Birmingham. With 17 Raspberry Pis and a great space to work in we welcomed over 45 participants to the event. The day was organised by myself and Jack Wearden from Birmingham University.
We delivered 4 workshops with a range of activities, these included:
- Introduction to Minecraft Python programming.
- An introduction to Python and Turtle programs
- Connecting LEDs to the GPIO and programming a traffic light and disco light sequence
- More advanced MInecraft programming (building a 3D house)
We had a really good day delivering the sessions and judging by the feedback the participants really enjoyed it too.
While True:print “woohoo!”
Looking forward to next time
