A second slice of Birthday Cake
After being snowed in on the 3rd March we really looked forward to the rescheduled Birthday party on the 28th April. We had a great day at Birmingham City University with well over 60 people attending the party.
The birthday party had all the usual Jam elements including:
Remote control spaceship (Martin O’Hanlon)
Physical Computing space asteroids (Stewart Watkiss)
Physical Computing using the Micro:bit (Bob Bilsland)
Hacking Python games (Alan O’Donohoe)
- Show and tell area in the futuristic learning space called The Hive.
- Robot Sumo battle by fizzPOP
- 3D printing demonstrations by Adam Woodall and Tim from backface.co.uk
- A great keynote talk by Pete Lomas (Co-creator of the Raspberry Pi and trustee)
We will be running more events at BCU so keep an eye out on twitter.
