Another month and another trip up to Exeter to take part in a Pi jam. Again anyone not there missed some really good projects.
Gordon Henderson came along with the fuze box, fuze basic now integrates with minecraft pi allowing you to write programs that directly control the minecraft world.
Fuze box running Minecraft Pi and Fuze Basic.
The Glockenspiel was again there along with the other projects from a local school teacher.
I didn’t demo any of my own projects but did do a quick demo of Sonic Pi and my nested loops program to the lady organising Sidmouth Science week, My main demo on my pi was the Helicopter game created by Tom Brough. Who demonstrated his Bob Robot, (see blog for videos that have been previously created)
Tom was also using a digital picture frame to explain how bob works.
It is the small box on the right hand side with the green display
In all another successful event and looking forward to the Torbay Jam on 12th April, Hope to see lots of families, children, teachers and other school staff there. We need more demos 🙂
