PA Raspberry Pi Competition

Innovation to save the planet

Register now

Our annual Raspberry Pi Competition promotes STEM education by challenging schoolchildren to invent systems that could benefit society using their engineering and coding skills, and a Raspberry Pi microcomputer. The ingenuity of children is remarkable, so we give it a place to thrive.

This year is our tenth anniversary, so we're making things bigger, better and more inspirational than ever. That's why we put this year's theme to a public vote, asking teachers, students and our partners what they think would be most inspiring. And they chose innovations to save the planet.

As the UN shares a bleak outlook on climate change, the need to act quickly on sustainability has never been more apparent. So, for the 2022 PA Raspberry Pi Competition, we’re challenging 8- to 18-year-olds to design technology that will help make the world a more sustainable place.

Our 2021 winners

The winners of the 2021 PA Raspberry Pi Competition were:

  • Years 4-6: St Mary's CE Primary School, who created an intelligent cane that communicates with other devices to inform blind, partially sighted or deaf-blind people of nearby hazards
  • Years 7-9: Priestnall School, who developed a gadget to monitor indoor air pollution and reduce the health risk
  • Years 10-11: Colchester County High School for Girls, who developed an AI-powered automatic feeder designed to support endangered species by providing food to specific animals
  • Years 12-13: Westminster School and Harris Westminster Sixth Form, who designed a new type of security – a dynamic ‘footprint’ – that prevents possession theft.

We also introduced a new ‘People’s Choice Award’, which the audience voted for during the Awards Day. Steeple Bumpstead School won for their system that monitors the temperature and humidity of beehives.
