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. Just pop in when you can.
The Jams are for anyone who’s interested in computing and technology. We will be on hand to guide you in your first steps in programming and offer advice if you need it. All ages are welcome to attend, from beginners to experts, to ask any questions or learn about programming and how to interface computers to the physical world. Entry is free but children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
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
- And more …
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.
The location of the Tech Jam is in the main entrance of Trelawney Building which is best approached by car from the Trevenson Road entrance. This gives access to the car park right outside. Parking is also available from the main entrance off Tolvaddon Road. Just follow the path towards the Student Union and Trelawney from there.
The following Tech Jam will be held in the new Bodmin Chy Trevail Council Building off Dunmere Road on Saturday 14th October 2017.
