9th Egham Jam – Show and Tell Competition – Prizes donated by Pimoroni


I really love the postal service as today another package arrived with prizes for the Show and Tell competition at the next Egham Jam on the 11th October.

This time from wonderful people at Pimoroni.
If you've been around the Raspberry Pi world for any amount of time the Pimoroni name will have popped up on your radar.

Assuming my facts are correct they are responsible for
Raspberry Pi Logo - yes that one.
Pibow Rainbow Case and now in many other colour variations
Unicorn Hat RGB LED matrix
Picade - Complete kit to make your own mini arcade machine

They also support the Picademy work and are very active in supporting the community and provide detailed tutorials. http://learn.pimoroni.com/

Specifically for the Show and Tell Competition they have provided 2 'Kit for the Book' sets

Kit for Adventures in Raspberry Pi by Carrie Anne Philbin (Book Link)
Kit for Adventures in Minecraft by David Whale and Martin O'Hanlon (Book Link)


Along with an Explorer Hat Pro and Explorer Hat Pro Parts Kit  for more fun making and lovely stickers. My favourite is 'I broke it better'

So if you have these books are considering getting them these kits include all the components and parts you need to make full use of the electronics based projects that are provided in the books.


With the Eben Upton signed cases from the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Deluxe Snap Rovers from Cyntech and now the Pimoroni  prizes the Prize Pool for the Competition is growing rapidly.

If you wish to enter the competition just have a project to show at the next Egham Jam on the 11th of October.  To attend (either showing or just visiting) please register on the Eventbrite page.  http://eghamjam9.eventbrite.com
