Quiz in my pants…..

Last night BEEES headed off to the Hill for our first pub quiz. With 8 teams competing fiercely for the ultimate chocolaty prize the pressure was on (sort of).
With the pizza and beer flowing the team “Joe didn’t give us the answers (honest!)” walked away with the grand prize.
See you for some more pub quiz action soon (with possibly a few moor engineering questions)

Hackathon photos and winners!

Hi everyone, we had an amazing 23 hours this weekend with the ARM 24 hour hackathon! Some really cleaver engineering and ingenuity was shown. With project such as a laser harp and Sudoku plotter and solver, even an attempted POV display! This event was a huge success and we look forward to seeing it again next year. Congratulations to the winning team who build a machine that could create, plot and solve Sudoku puzzles. They also impressively made a play-station controller to operate the machine with.

Also a special mention to team “destroy them with lasers” whose laser harp was really well presented and engineered creation. It’s rendition of ‘a space odyssey’ was particularly entertaining.

And a final mention to the POV display/PCB slinger that was created by the infamous Jammie dodgers. This was a really great little bit of engineering and was a close contender to the other project displyed.

OK, enough waffle, here are the pictures:
