Anita Chandraker, head of IT delivery at PA, is quoted in an article about this year’s Raspberry Pi competition. 

The article explains that the competition, which challenges young people across the UK to use the Raspberry Pi computer to ‘help the environment’, will be judged at an awards ceremony in London’s Science Museum on 2 April.

It goes on to describe the shortlisted entries for 2014, which include a recycling device that uses a barcode reader to identify waste material and then automatically open the correct bin; and a prototype for a product that can help homeowners establish whether solar panels will reduce their energy costs.

Anita comments on the high standard of the entries received: “The skills and the imagination of the students – with some as young as eight years old – have been phenomenal this year. Overall there are a higher number of entries this year, and we’ve been delighted to hear that schools have used the competition as a way to align IT with their curriculum goals.”

She adds: “There has also been much bigger participation from higher education students this year – over 25 per cent of the entries came from universities.”
