Raspberry Jam is the rapidly growing global network of users that meet every month to support anyone with an interest in the Raspberry Pi computer. We have had 1000s of people of all ages from Manchester to Melbourne and Silicon Valley to Singapore regularly attending Raspberry Jams to find out what they can do with this £25 computer. You don’t need to own a Raspberry Pi computer to attend, you only need to possess a desire to discover the potential of this device to boost interest and engagement in computing education.
