Chelmsford Raspberry Jam 3

Saturday 10th November 2018 – 11am – 4pm
Chelmsford Library, CM1 1QH

We’re holding a medium sized Raspberry Jam as part of the Ideas Festival.

Coding workshops for young people including Astro Pi, send your code to space; create LED light animations with Microbits; Scratch and artificial intelligence; drop in Raspberry Pi, Microbit, Code Club, Sonic Pi workshops.

Also, a small number of tech projects on show, a few lightning talks and some other surprise activities around the library.

Here’s a video of David Whale’s Microbit guitar and links to his Youtube and Github accounts where he is documenting its development.



At the other end of the library, the light parade items were being wired up. Next year we hope to code the lights as part of the Chelmsford Light Parade at Ideas Festival.


If you or your young person can help with workshops or want to show/talk about your project, give details as part of the booking process.

There will be lots of photos and social media activity, so you will need to agree to photo/video consent on booking.

We’re part of the Ideas Festival CommuniTea Party in the library.
