CamJam's Raspberry Pi Birthday Party

2 Mar 2024

10.00am – 5.00pm GMT

William Gates Building

Cambridge, United Kingdom


CamJam celebrates Raspberry Pi’s third (official) birthday and members of the Raspberry Pi team are coming!

The first ever Raspberry Pi computer was released twelve years ago, but its birthday was February 29th! So while it’s twelve years old, this is only the third time we have been able to throw it a proper bumper birthday party🎈🥳

This CamJam is being hosted at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory (at the William Gates Building) with the support of Raspberry Pi.

At 14:20, Raspberry Pi’s Eben Upton, Gordon Hollingworth, and James Adams will participate in a panel about Raspberry Pi hardware and software.

Please note: this is a ticketed event with a small admission fee for adults; however, if this would affect your ability to attend, please contact us.

Children must be always supervised while at CamJam, so if you are under 18, please make sure you are accompanied by a parent or guardian who has their own ticket.

We are fully inclusive of technology: if your project is based around an Arduino, micro:bit or something else, we would still love to see it!


We are going to be offering an assortment of activities, which will include:

  • Talks - aimed at a variety of different abilities and on a variety of different topics.
  • Workshops - to allow participants to learn and practice skills. Register for workshops here!
  • Show and tell - an area for makers to show off their projects and talk to participants about them.
  • Visit the marketplace - the Raspberry Pi store will be here in miniature form, along with other top vendors.
  • Enjoy coffee, soft drinks, and a light lunch at our cafe, or bring your own packed lunch.


We are looking for the following to help us to make the Jam the best experience possible:

  • Presenters - come along and give a talk for a variety of people with different levels of knowledge.
  • Show-and-tell - have a table to show off your technology projects.
  • Workshop organisers & helpers - we need people to help propose and run workshops, as well as to give on-the-spot help during the sessions.
  • Jam Makers - to take on general marshalling responsibilities.
