PA Consulting recently announced the winners of its annual Raspberry Pi programming competition, which sees primary, secondary and college students across the UK compete to invent, design and create products using the Raspberry Pi microcomputer.
Entrants to this year’s competition were tasked to use their ingenuity to create a positive human future by designing the ‘sustainable city of the future’.
This year, the 14 shortlisted teams' entries were judged by a virtual expert panel based on their video submissions. The 2020 winners were St Mary’s School in Horsham, Reading School, Longridge Towers School and Dame Alice Owen’s School.
The competition has generated widespread regional and trade media coverage including Electronic Weekly, Business Telegraph, Cambridge Network, New Electronics, Welwyn Hatfield Times and The District Post.
Anita Chandraker, innovation expert and Board member at PA Consulting and sponsor for the competition, says: “Encouraging the younger generation is so important to us, so our competition aims to help them develop their interest in innovation and technology using a real-world challenge such as sustainability.”
