As I’m sure most of you know, myself and Tim Richardson run an event called Pi Wars which is a Raspberry Pi Robotics Challenge Competition. Well, over on the DesignSpark Raspberry Pi Tech Hub, I’ve written a fairly lengthy piece about the history of the event, from inception to where we are currently, preparing for this year. I hope some of you will be interested and will read it! 🙂

The next event is on 1st-2nd April this year and we’re very excited about it. It’s a lot of work (especially for Tim, who creates all the courses!) but it’s well worth it with over 70 teams competing. If you haven’t got your tickets to watch the competition, head over to Eventbrite and take a look. Tickets are free for those 16 and under and only £5 for adults (or £7 for two days). If you’d like to bring a big party of adults, please contact me for a group rate!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
