Following the success of previous events, the competition is running for two days this time (1st-2nd April).
On the first day, over 30 school teams will compete against each other. On the second day, over 30 teams split into Beginner, Intermediate and Pro/Advanced categories will battle it out. There are seven challenges and taking part in each challenge will earn points that will be added together to see where the teams sit in the overall ranking.
For more information about the competition, see the Pi Wars website.
Tickets to watch the event
Spectator tickets are available by clicking the green TICKETS button on Eventbrite. Those aged 16 and under go free but must be accompanied by an adult. For those older than 16, day tickets are £5 each. If you are planning on attending both days, you can get a two-day ticket for £7. We would ask that you strongly consider being a Judge or Jam Maker (Marshal). It’s great fun, will only take an hour or two of your time, and your entry is FREE as a reward for helping us out! See below for more details!
Judging and Jam Making
Judges will be given instructions on how to judge a challenge and score sheets to fill in. You basically need to be fair, consistent and diligent. It’s one of the more fun ways of being involved with the event.
Jam Makers will be doing various jobs such as manning the front desk, collecting score sheets from Judges and being a point-of-contact for attendees with questions. Again, it’s a fun way of getting involved!
If you have any questions about the event or tickets, please get in contact with Mike via the Pi Wars website!
