DesignSpark Sponsors Pi Wars 4.0

We are delighted to announce that we will once again be sponsoring this year's Pi Wars competition, which will be held in April 2018. The fourth annual event will take place in Cambridge, UK. 

Pi Wars 4.0 is a two-day, challenge-based robotics competition in which Raspberry Pi-controlled robots are created by teams. The robots 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, teams have entered from schools, families, groups of hobbyists and solo roboteers.

Up to 76 teams can take part over the event weekend. The competition is open to anyone from around the world and is run by the same team that organises the Cambridge Raspberry Jam.
