There have been whispers of Raspberry Pi coming to Blackpool, and I am pleased to say that the first steps have been taken to bring a Jam to Blackpool.
Yesterday I met with Elaine and Clancy from Blackpool Council. They were really excited to learn more about the Raspberry Pi and how it can be used to educate and express creative talent.
The remit of the Jam is simple, to educate and enable anyone to enjoy learning about computing. Blackpool Raspberry Jam is still in the early stages but we have a great chance of making a wonderful event for children and adults alike.
Now that the planning is in place, it is time to launch the first Blackpool Raspberry Jam and it will take place on September 13th at Palatine Library on St Annes Road, Blackpool.
Tim Gibbon, the mad scientist will be bringing his box of bits to show off his latest projects.
Blackpool Council have very genorously given us our own room in Palatine library, with free wifi, parking and lots of time.
Tickets are completely free, but for our first Jam, spaces will be limited, so first come, first served.
