Raspberry Pi and Code Club will be both turning five, and we’d love for you to come and see what Raspberry Pi is all about, try some of our Code Club projects, and learn what we’re doing to support educators teaching computer science.
We’ll have talks and workshops covering multiple subjects and interests, show and tell stands showcasing incredible creations, vendors exhibiting their kits in the Maker Market, and even goody bags and cupcakes throughout the weekend, with content suitable for everyone whatever their age or experience.
We are also holding an Educators’ Celebration for teachers and other educators of young people. Does your digital making brain need an MOT? Educators can sign up for talks, hands-on workshops, and other opportunities to share classroom ideas, pedagogy, and practice. If you’re an interested educator, buy a ticket as normal and we’ll be in touch soon with more details on how you can participate and contribute

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
