Callum’s passion for computing began when he was just 10 and received his first computer from Raspberry Pi – an educational programme which encourages young people to get involved with computer science.
He said: “From there I started just making a few basic websites while I was still in primary school. I had always been interested in computers but didn’t really know how to do anything with it so this opened up a lot of doors for me.”
Callum went on to build his own server in his bedroom during his second year of high school and later built a flying drone. About 70,000 girls in the UK are waiting to join the Guides and Brownies because of a lack of volunteers. The charity Girlguiding have now begun a recruiting drive.
