PiWars is a non-destructive robot competition, with autonomous and remote-controlled challenges, where the robots are limited to roughly the size of a piece of A4 paper. PiWars robots must have a Raspberry Pi as their “brain”.
The competition takes place over one weekend each year (COVID permitting) around the end of March.
Due to the high volume of applicants we failed to get into the 2018 competition. However, we used the time to start building a robot for the next year. In 2019, not only were we successful in getting a place in the competition, but we also managed to win first place in the advanced category!
In 2021 the competition has been reworked so that entries are submitted by video (so that it can continue even with COVID restrictions in place). The games have also been postponed until July to allow school teams more time to prepare.
