11 Dec 2021

That's right! Robot wars is finally back with just as much fun, chaos and pizza as before! The competition will take place in room 1.11/1.11A at MVB on the Saturday, 11th December, 2021. All competitors should be at the location by 11am and the event itself will start at 1pm. Expect some free pizza for lunch that day!

Before the actual competition, there will be an optional workshop on the 1st of December at the MVB Hackspace, where beginners will receive a kit and learn how to assemble their own robots, and get help on their build from our in-house experts. The kit itself is £10 (incl. in ticket price) and you can collect it from the hackspace on the 1st of December between 10am and 3pm (but the morning is more favourable as the Hackspace may be busy in the afternoon). You can still get help on your robot within this time frame. The kit is NOT required if you want to enter the competition - you can still enter with your own robot.


Official Ant-weight Rules List:

In short:

  • Must fit in a 4in3 box (~101mm3)
