We have some stocks of Raspberry Pis to give away to people who attend a workshop. Build your MAZI Zone and take it home with you!
The half-day workshops will provide “hands-on” opportunities to try out the MAZI DIY networking toolkit, based around the Raspberry Pi. The workshops will be divided into two groups: Workshop 1 will be for people with some coding knowledge (this can be quite limited!) who are interested in finding out more about it all works, and perhaps getting involved in supporting the on-going development of the open-source project. Workshop 2 is for technical novices and people with an interest in how the technologies can be used in domains such as; education, art & creativity, and civic & community participation.
