Thank you to everyone who came along to Exeter Library on Saturday and for making our Raspberry Pi jam birthday celebrations so successful and fun🎉
Another well attended and busy Raspberry Jam at Exeter Library. We saw a lot of new people and some familiar faces.
We took along our PlayStation dance mat connected to minecraft which was very popular
as well as the robotic arm and our 3d printer.
The next jam on May 6th will be the fourth anniversary of holding Raspberry Jams in Exeter library – more about that as we get nearer the time!
On 28th March we delivered a workshop at Exeter Business School for their One Planet MBA course. As part of their course the students were set a challenge to use technology to solve a problem. Our session was on the internet of things and we explored using both the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino using node-red. The students then spent the next few days developing their ideas and putting what they had learnt into practice.

In March we ran an adult coding workshop at Exeter Phoenix. This was two two hour sessions on separate days. The first was an introduction to the BBC micro:bit and the second an introduction to the Raspberry Pi. We looked at the different coding environments for the Micro:bit and built a die,
made some music and made an external led flash.
On Monday we ran four separate workshops in FabLab Devon for Devon Recovery Learning. We did a session on using LEDs with Scratch, building an air piano, an introduction to Sonic Pi and drawing with python using turtle.
The workshops were great fun and produced some really good results. Here are some pictures of the designs drawn using turtle:
And here are a couple of videos of the air piano:
