Research suggests that girls value the opportunity to use computing in real-world applications. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is working with Apps for Good to deliver this RCT for pupils in Year 8 (aged 12-13), supporting them to solve real-world problems through technology while studying the computing curriculum. A small feasibility pilot has already been successfully completed, with some great feedback from teachers, and the full intervention is due to begin in January 2022, with results expected in Autumn 2022.
The findings from this research will be made available here once the interventions have been completed in schools and the data has been analysed.
