Families and educators are invited to join in the fun of learning about coding!
A Raspberry Jam brings together people of all ages to experience coding with the Raspberry Pi™, the powerful bite-sized computer the size of a credit card. Created by Broadcom Engineer, Eben Upton, Raspberry Pi is all the rage with students, teachers, coding clubs and families because it is a user-friendly and super affordable way to experience the power of coding.
At the same time, the Raspberry Pi Foundation is holding its Picademy in Orange County. Raspberry Pi enthusiasts affiliated with the Raspberry Pi Foundation will be on hand to jam along with you! Plus, bring your own Raspberry Pi project to jam and win a COOKIES N’ πCUBED giveaway every 15 minutes from our partners.
THE RASPBERRY JAM IS FREE TO REGISTERED GUESTS – SO SIGN UP YOUR CLASSES AND FAMILIES SINCE SPACE IS LIMITED
