Raspberry Jam

Thank you for your interest in joining the Raspberry Jam community! Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are currently not publishing Raspberry Jam events.

In the meantime, we’re providing exciting opportunities for young people, parents, and volunteers to get creative with tech through Digital Making at Home from the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

There are still many ways for you to get involved in the Raspberry Pi community! Please register your details with us so we can find out how best to support you.

Raspberry Jams are independently organised community events for people to come together to learn about digital making with Raspberry Pi. Jam events come in all shapes and sizes: workshops for beginners, drop-in sessions to work on your own projects, show-and-tell, talks, and more. A Jam is a meeting of all kinds of people: some will be new to physical computing, and some will have plenty of experience that they are happy to share. Jams are welcoming events where you’ll meet and learn from like-minded people in a friendly environment.

Starting your own Raspberry Jam

If there isn’t a Jam in your area then you could try and organise one yourself! It’s not as hard as it might sound – the trick is to start small and build from there.

Raspberry Jam Guidebook

We’ve gathered advice from Jam Makers about how they run their Jams and compiled it into a guidebook. It contains advice and tips on everything from finding a venue and volunteers to activities you can put on at your Jam and marketing the event too. There are handy checklists through too so you can be sure you won’t forget anything. We’re really happy to chat through any ideas you might have and provide support as you plan your jam – just get in touch: jam@raspberrypi.org
