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.
The winners of the 2021 PA Raspberry Pi Competition were:
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.
