    PA’s Raspberry Pi Competition 2016 - Finals
    Making the difference by inspiring the innovators of the future

    @PA_Consulting - #PAPiAwards16 - @PA_RaspberryPi

    Finalists event: 14 April 2016

    The Raspberry Pi is one of the most exciting innovations of recent years. This affordable, credit-card-sized computer aims to inspire the next generation of software and hardware engineers to develop their programming skills and take an active interest in innovating across many industries.

    Recognising its potential, we launched the PA Raspberry Pi competition – an annual contest that challenges school children and college students to put their programming skills to the test and use the Raspberry Pi to make the world a better place: from innovating to help the environment, to improving health and wellbeing.

    Our latest competition challenged students to use the Raspberry Pi to drive innovation in sport and leisure.


    What is the competition?
    Recognising the potential of the Raspberry Pi to educate the next generation of software and hardware engineers in programming, we launched another competition for 2015/16, which challenges schoolchildren and students to use a Raspberry Pi to drive innovation in sport and leisure.

    What are the rules?
    Each team is allowed to use a limited amount of additional hardware (besides a display unit, keyboard, mouse, SD card and internet connectivity), with a budget of approximately £100, not including the cost of the Raspberry Pi.

    What are the judges looking for?
    Entries will be evaluated primarily on their creativity and originality. The judges may take into account a number of factors including but not limited to:

    - Team passion - How well the team’s enthusiasm is portrayed through the group project.

    - Simplicity and clarity of build instructions - The propensity to encourage others by showing how the team created and built its project.

    - World benefit - Could the project improve our world today?

    - Commercial potential - Does the project have the propensity to develop and progress on a larger scale?
