Cornwall’s Tech Jams are run by volunteers working in IT and education throughout Cornwall, in association with Software Cornwall, local businesses and Bodmin College.
We aim to run the Jams from 10am to 2pm on the second Saturday of the month, alternating between venues in the Redruth/Pool/Camborne area and the Bodmin area.
The Jams are for anyone who’s interested in computing and technology. All ages are welcome to attend to, from beginners to experts, to ask any questions or learn about programming and how to interface computers to the physical world.
We have a number of Raspberry Pi computers enabling you to experiment with and learn how to:
- Program in Minecraft
- Control traffic lights with Python and Scratch
- Compose music with Sonic Pi
- Use the Raspberry Pi camera to take pictures and record video
- Program robots
We’re more than happy to help with any questions you might have or support that you require. From advice on how to get started through to problems you are having with your programs, hardware or computer.
We’d also love to see projects that you are working on, so please bring them along and let us see what you’ve been up to.
