On Saturday, 10th and Sunday, 11th July, Pi Wars 2021 at Home will be broadcast via a live stream on YouTube featuring all 46 teams who made it to the competition days by submitting their videos. The YouTube video link will be emailed out to all teams, the Pi Wars emailing list and, of course, publicised on the front page of the Pi Wars website.
Saturday will feature Young Teams in Novice and Experienced categories. Sunday will feature all other teams in Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced categories. You can see a full list of teams, along with their (optional) blogs and also their geographical locations here.
