Raspberry Jamboree 2013

Saturday 9 March 2013

10.30am - 4.00pm

Manchester Central Conference Centre, Windmill Street, Manchester, M2 3GX



This Raspberry Jamboree, supported by BCS Manchester Branch, is open to all who wish to explore the potential the Raspberry Pi has to offer education, not its limitations.

We particularly want to encourage those with an interest in education to attend to discover exactly how they can use the Raspberry Pi to inspire children to engage with computing. In additional we aim to share effective Jam-making practice. As Raspberry Jam continues to spread far around the World, we plan to discuss what a successful Raspberry Jam tastes like, share the most successful recipes and the best ingredients so you can have a wonderful Jam in your area.

Entrance to the Raspberry Jam will also include entrance to the Education Innovation conference which will take place on 8th & 9th March.
