First Pi Jam

  • You have a WIP Pi project, or one you want to work on?
  • You want to learn what a Pi about?
  • Or you know what a Pi is, but what can you do besides making an LED light up with a button, or make sounds with a buzzer?

Come join us at our first Raspberry Pi Jam kindly hosted by Science Gallery Dublin and it's FREE.

Please note, this is an 18+ event

We will have 3 activities:

Beginners: Introduction to Raspberry Pis before joining the rest of the Intermediate groups. Hopefully we have some borrowed Pis to get people acquainted with it.

Intermediate: Know what a Raspberry Pi is and connected a button, this group will be shown what else you can do with Raspberry Pi and other components. This will be self-driven tutorial and we will have a few mentors to help with any questions.

Hobbyists: Those who have projects already, or have one they want to start, and are comfortable with electronics. This group will be connecting and sharing knowledge as well as demoing their project.
