…Raspberry Jams are therefore an amazing place for beginners to start their journey with the Raspberry Pi. By the end of any workshop, participants, young and old, are guaranteed to learn new skills. Through networking (in the business buzz-word sense, not in the wires, internet and magic sense) like-minded people meet and share ideas. Some walk away with solutions to their problems, many are inspired to try something new and others join forces to collaborate and develop resources that others can use.
At Raspberry Jams, amazing people come together and do amazing things. The community that surrounds the Raspberry Pi is just as essential as the device itself. What often evades our gaze is that, as with any technology, the Raspberry Pi is not about circuits and bits, it’s about people. They are the people on the ground sharing their knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm so that the Raspberry Pi can achieve its mission. They provide the spark that ignites the imagination of young ladies and men, who in a matter of years will achieve things that far surpass our dreams of robotic servants….
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
