Raspberry Jam, UTC Media City

News

UTC@MediaCityUK were our hosts for this Raspberry Jam event on Saturday 6th June; a day when we were privileged to join them as they delivered their first workshops to their soon-to-be cohort of Year 10 students.

The UTC also opened their doors to the local and wider community through an open invite to the Jam.

Server set for more challenges

The Jam gave more chances of extended learning challenges through resources and tools shared online and through workshops.

Either from the teacher toolkit, or hands-on opportunities with Raspberry Pi and electric paint, we saw new projects born out of group tinkering.
