Cornwall’s Tech Jams are run by volunteers working in IT and education throughout Cornwall, in association with Software Cornwall, local businesses, Cornwall College and Bodmin College

Jams run from 10am to 2pm on the second Saturday of the month, alternating between venues.

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.

Jams run from 10am to 2pm on the second Saturday of the month, alternating between venues in the Redruth/Pool/Camborne area and the Bodmin area. It’s a drop in event so you can turn up whenever you’re free and stay for as long as you like.
