We would like to congratulate all the finalists for their remarkable contribution to PA's Raspberry Pi competition and wish them every success with their innovations in the future.
CATEGORIES AND WINNERS:
PA’s Primary School Award: academic years 4-6:
WINNER: FitDog - William Law CE Primary School
Their project is a robot dog that aims to encourage children to exercise. The dog (his name is Bolt) provides motivation for the child and is programmed with the following phrases: ‘keep up the pace', ‘keep moving’ and ‘do twenty star jumps!’.
FINALISTS: Pi n’ Mash, St Mary’s CE Primary School; The Green Pi Team,
Bowmansgreen Primary School
PA’s Secondary School Award: academic years 7-11:
WINNER: Pi-Scription - The Liverpool Blue Coat School
They have created an automatic prescription dispenser that works using QR codes given to patients by their doctors. The patient simply takes the QR code to the machine which recognises the code and dispenses the required prescription. Their system aims to make the whole process of picking up a prescription hassle free, as the prescription is picked up instantly at the surgery with no need to visit a pharmacy.
FINALISTS: WHS STEM Club, Wales High School; Lavant Pi, Lavant House School
PA’s Sixth Form and College Award: academic years 12-13:
WINNER: Revolution Pi Truro and Penwith College
Revolution Pi is an innovative way to control your computer. Using a small camera situated in an easy-to-mount case, it can track your eye movement and consequently relay this to your computer screen. It allows the user to be able to move the mouse anywhere just by looking. The thinking behind the invention was to allow those without the ability to easily manoeuvre a mouse, such as amputees or those who suffer from rare diseases like motor neurone disease, to be able to communicate effectively with a computer and make use of all the benefits it can offer.
FINALISTS: Team Collyers, The College of Richard Collyer; Dr Pi, Haileybury
PA’s Young Entrepreneur Award: undergraduate team:
WINNER: Hamoudy - University of Birmingham
This is a wireless, internet-connected doorbell. When a person rings your doorbell, it can perform various actions such as calling your phone so it can be used as an intercom, texting you, emailing you with a photo of the person who is at your door, tweet you or live stream HD video locally and on YouTube. This invention could be used in care homes when an elderly patient requires assistance from a nurse, or in an ill person’s home, they could contact the nurse directly and quickly for instructions.
FINALISTS: CHOJO, University of Liverpool; Dreamer, University of Liverpool
