FOLLOWING the success of January’s ‘Jam Packed’ event, Pedmore Technology College and Community School will again bring computing skills to the community.

Pedmore Jam – a free open event to all members of the community – will be hosted by the school on Saturday, June 27.

The day will feature a host of computing fun, talks, demonstrations and hands-on workshops for people of all ages.

Lorraine Turner, school’s director of communications, said: “It will be a fabulous day for anyone interested in the Raspberry Pi Computer, Scratch and Python. From beginners to experts and those aged 7 to 107.

“We’re also appealing for any adults with some experience of the Raspberry Pi to support our jam. In particular, we're looking for teachers, lecturers, software developers, engineers, web developers, designers, animators, hardware hackers, and digital makers to join us and share their knowledge, skills and expertise.

“It really doesn't matter if you can't code or don't have a Raspberry Pi. We will show and teach you everything you need to know, and besides – it’s not all about coding.”

Doors open at 10am and a wide variety of activities will take place until 2pm. Light refreshments will be available, but visitors are advised to bring their own packed lunches as lunch will not be provided.

Registration for the event is compulsory and can be done by visiting
