PA Raspberry Pi Competition
Our annual Raspberry Pi Competition is a celebration of STEM education, giving schoolchildren the tools and opportunity to invent products that can benefit society. Using engineering and coding skills and a Raspberry Pi microcomputer, students put their ingenuity to the test to come up with inspiring solutions to global challenges.
Responding to pressing energy crises across the world, this year’s theme is accelerating energy transition.
We only have one planet. To reverse the current climate emergency while responding to public appeals for affordable energy, we need an ambitious, coordinated climate response and energy transition. As the UN shares a bleak outlook on climate change, the need to act quickly on sustainability has never been more apparent. For the 2023 PA Raspberry Pi Competition, we’re challenging 8- to 18-year-olds to design the solutions that will bring us into the future while supporting us in the present.
It’s no easy task, but human ingenuity has a way of solving even the most complex problems. We’re excited to see what the students come up with.
Looking for inspiration? See how we’re leading the charge in energy transition:
