Show and Tell Interviews

Interviews by Hayley Walsh, @moses_walsh


Despite the oh so quintessential Manchester weather this Saturday, it didn’t stop the ‘summer’ RasperryPi Jam Show & Tell.

Saturday 11th June 2016 saw another successful MCR Jam held at its home The Shed, Digital Innovation Manchester Metropolitan. This month’s Jam was different to the previous 36 as we invited the community, old and new, to come and show and tell their projects, creations and ideas with one another alongside the traditional hack style activity.

As the rain bounced down outside the Pi projects and activities flowed inside, from robots that follow lines to Dr Who’s TARDIS consoles. The wealth of imagination and passion was awesome, and it’s safe to say that MCR has a burgeoning Digital Maker Community.

For those of you who missed it don’t worry we’ll be holding another show and tell in the Shed early 2017. For now, check out some of the project and people who made them…

Schedule change & Workshop Materials

Upcoming Manchester Raspberry Jam events will now be occurring every other month. As before, the provisional date of each event will be the second Saturday of each scheduled month.

Following the success of other Raspberry Jam events with a less frequent schedule, such as Cambridge Raspberry Jam, we have decided to trial a bi-monthly schedule, with events held every other month. Our goal is to have several different activities and workshops at each event in the near future.
