Great resource, thanks for sharing.
HackSpace magazine #1 is out now! Amazing. Just downloaded it for free! Particularly looking forward to reading an interview with Becky Stern- 'How to get paid for making fun things'.
PDF of the first issue is here
Rasbian comes with Minecraft Pi, a custom edition of Minecraft made for Raspberry Pi that's good for games clubs.
You can also try the Pi-top OS (developed for the Pi-Top computers but can be installed on other Raspberry Pi devices). This gives you access to other games like CEEDuniverse as well as the Minecraft Pi edition.

Yep, we reset the devices after each workshop to give users a clean slate to work from each time. In other workshops, learners can have their own SD card that they bring along each session.
We generally use standard Raspbian and set it up how we like it using PiBakery.
PiBakery is a tool for creating and customising Raspberry Pi SD cards, we wrote up a guide on LibraryMakers.
Then, after each workshop, we can just write the SD cards again.
You could also just reformat the cards and download NOOBs again.
The CamJam EduKit 1 is pretty good as a starter project and only £5 as well. Starting a Jam next Jan so will post if I get some good ideas!
Looks like your connection to Maker Ed was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
