Pi Wars 2018 – venue and date confirmed! – 21st-22nd April

Myself and Tim are delighted to announce that Pi Wars 2018 will take place at the Cambridge Computer Laboratory (William Gates Building) on 21st-22nd April. This is the venue that we have used for the last two events and we are over-the-moon to be able to return there. Many, many thanks are due to the staff and academics at the Lab, without whom we would not have been able to make the booking.

We are still looking for teams to apply to enter the competition. Please bear in mind that you must apply before 12 noon on 3rd October to be eligible!

Remember, there are four categories, within which teams compete against their peers:

  • School teams, including kids’ clubs
  • Beginners
  • Intermediates
  • Advanced/Professional

Our intention is to offer much more assistance and mentoring this year, with everyone helping everyone else via an online forum and also via a Discord chat channel. We are also preparing a list of hints and tips for each challenge, and in general, to give teams a head-start on building their robot.

To find out more about the competition, head over to the Pi Wars website and to apply, visit this page and fill in the form.
