New Electronics has covered the launch of PA’s second Raspberry Pi programming challenge.
The article explains that PA wants pupils to use a Raspberry Pi to develop a computer program that will help the environment.
The article quotes Anita Chandraker, head of the IT delivery practise at PA, who says: "Last year we were amazed at the potential that the students showed and it was great to see their enthusiasm about the inventions they had created and brought to life.
"This year we want even more schools to get involved. We hope this competition will continue to raise schools' interest in technology and students' enthusiasm for computer programming."
The article goes on to explain that this competition was also held last year and that students had to create a device that would ‘make the world a better place’. Winning entries included an air quality and weather surveillance device, an automated pill dispenser, and a system to help elderly or disabled people answer the door.
