Jam Packed is a grant funded project supported by the UK Department for Education, the Raspberry Pi Foundation and RM Education Limited to support the development of the teaching of Computing and provide inspiring & engaging experiences for learners of all ages. Jam Packed achieves this through a roadshow of computing community events, online webinars for teachers and sharing of teaching resources through this site. The computing community events are targeted at areas with high levels of social disadvantage.
