Pi Wars 2019 will take place on 30th & 31st March at the Cambridge Computer Laboratory (William Gates Building) in Cambridge, UK. This is the same venue that we have used for the past three events.
School teams will compete on Saturday, 30th March and all other teams will compete on Sunday, 31st March.
The dates were chosen because:
- It avoids most schools’ exam period.
- It avoids the Easter school holidays (which start the following weekend)
- It is the closest weekend we could manage to the ideal ‘beginning of April’ date most people requested.
Space Exploration Theme
To celebrate 50 years of space exploration, and most notably the 50th Anniversary of the first moon landing, this year’s Pi Wars will be space-themed!
