In April, we challenged our members to tell us about summer code club initiatives in their local communities. Whether through assisting in the setup of a brand new code club or working with an established group, our goal was to empower our members to pass on their coding and electrical engineering skills to the next generation.
After evaluating a fantastic collection of applications, we announced the ten chosen members. These STEM champions hailed from all over the world, volunteering their time and resources to ensure that all children have the tools to thrive in modern world. Each finalist received a and a batch of - the latter kindly donated by our colleagues at Kitronik.
Now, with all their blogs in, we had more difficult choices to make: who would be the winners? After much deliberation, here they are!

Our Grand Prize winners will receive ten , which each feature a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, the book Adventures in Raspberry Pi, a microSD card, a case, a USB keyboard and mouse, and more.

Our Runner Up winners will receive a bundle of micro:bit accessories featuring the , , and .
Congratulations to our winners, and a huge thank you to everyone who participated in this challenge! We hope your students' love of electronics will continue to grow, as they become the engineers of the future.
