This Saturday 24 November sees Cotswold Raspberry Jam in Cheltenham, 1-4pm. Free tickets are available from: http://cotswoldjam.org
The event includes the Astro Pi Mission Zero tutorial where you can get your code running on the International Space Station! If you’re under 14, you’ll also get a certificate posted to you after your code has run on the ISS, confirming the date and location.
You can also learn how to code Christmas tree decorations in Minecraft. Write a program to create one star or bauble, then use our example code to place it on the top of every nearby tree!
Cotswold Jam are going to give away a brand new Raspberry Pi 3B+ to the best child programmer who doesn’t already own a Pi, and there are also CamJam EduKit prizes for those who bring along their own projects to show & tell.
David Pride will be demonstrating his Digital Graffiti using a Pi and a Wii controller, there will be balloon-popping war robots with Micro Pi Noon and a host of retro games to play with.
Come along, 1-4pm on Saturday afternooon!
Earlier on Saturday morning, Cotswold Jam are co-hosting Code Club South West’s volunteer meetup – if you’re an adult interested in helping out with Code Clubs, do come along from 10am.
