School kids get new Raspberry Pi design challenge

PA Consulting Group’s Anita Chandraker, head of digital delivery, is quoted in an article in Electronic Week reporting on the launch of PA's sixth Raspberry Pi coding competition.

PA’s theme this year is eco-sustainability and, as Richard Wilson explains, the challenge for the kids is to invent a project or system that will help save the planet using a Raspberry Pi, credit-card-size computer module.

Anita Chandraker, who leads the digital service team at PA, says: “More and more schools are taking a significant interest in coding following its introduction on the school curriculum. It is more important than ever for young people to understand the basics of programming and the power technology can have in transforming the world."

Anita concludes: “Our Raspberry Pi competition gives teams of students as young as eight the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of computer programming and engineering – valuable skills which have been declining in the UK in recent years.”
