The last weekend of March sees the 5th Pi Wars competition. Teams from all over the world will come together in Cambridge, UK and compete against each other on seven challenge courses, hoping to earn points, prizes and glory.
You can get involved at the event, and attend for free, by volunteering as a Judge and/or Marshal. It’s not as scary as it sounds! As a Judge, you’re given all you need to record scores and measure run times. As a Marshal, you’ll be manning the front desk and/or doing little jobs to make the event run smoothly. All we ask is for 2-3 hours of your time. The rest is yours to do with as you please – check out the robots, watch some challenge runs and get to know some of the members of this great community.
If you just want to attend Pi Wars as a spectator, tickets are still available – they are £5 per day or £7 for the weekend. Get your tickets here. You’ll be able to see all the robots in action, browse the Marketplace and Show and Tell stalls and, if you’d like to, take part in a robot programming workshop with Neil Lambeth of Red Robotics.
It’s all happening on 30th & 31st March, so come along and join in the fun. 🙂
