The Challenge

Schools are invited to take part in a regional challenge to find the very best innovators and designers/developers using the Raspberry Pi.

2 age groups will be assessed using the core languages of Scratch for under 13’s and Python for under 18’s

The challenge will be conducted within schools, with a briefing event day to meet schools and set up the challenge and then a showcase day to see the best work produced and award a series of prizes for schools.

Schools will receive marketing support, equipment for the challenges, and winning students will receive prizes.

Organisation

We will host a briefing day, facilitated by Aegis to support schools, and to enable them to fully participate in the event. (target date 18-19th September 2014).

All registered schools attending the day (1 hour sessions) would be receiving their pack of Raspberry Pi’s complete with accessory kit and also a USB keyboard and mouse for each Pi. (we wont be able to offer monitors, but apart from this, the schools will have everything they need to take part, with schools receiving between 5 and 10 Raspberry Pi packs each).

Schools can run the activity as part of extra curricular, extension activities or out of schools/lunch clubs over a 5 week period, with an internal selection of the best work to represent the school.

We will hold a showcase day for each participating school to present their best work to a judging panel (target date 22-23rd October).

BBC and ITV will be invited to cover the whole process (ITV have shown initial interest).

Promotion

A series of initial tasks have been devised to capture young peoples imaginations when looking at the Raspberry Pi as a tool for learning coding.

Among these tasks is the challenge to make a Jelly Baby Scream.

This is a simple coding and accessory task which could be used by any group to demonstrate simple skills and how coding can be fun.

We are using this as a campaign technique to generate wide interest within schools, and to demonstrate the very widest and quirkiest streaks in the use of the Raspberry Pi;
