Additional Information

Pi Wars is a two-day, challenge-based robotics competition in which Raspberry Pi-controlled robots are created by teams and then compete in various non-destructive challenges to earn points. Prizes and Medals are awarded at the end of the day in a ceremony. In previous years, we've had teams from schools, families, groups of hobbyists and solo roboteers. For the 2018 event, we have accepted 76 teams into the competition.

Schools compete on the Saturday and non-school Beginners, Intermediates and Advanced/Professionals compete on the Sunday.

Members of the public are invited to attend the event as spectators, see the robots compete, find out more about the Raspberry Pi and enjoy a fun weekend for all the family. Teams begin to compete at 10.30am and we expect to finish the competition around 5pm. A prize-giving ceremony takes place around that time and takes about an hour, bringing the event to a close around 6pm.

Pi Wars takes place in Cambridge, UK and is open to anyone from around the world. It is run by the same team that organises the Cambridge Raspberry Jam.
