Created in 1998, Eurobot is an international amateur robotics contest open to teams of young people, organised either in student projects or in independent clubs. Eurobot takes place in Europe but also welcomes countries from other continents. In 2011, 21 countries, represented by 45 teams, were involved in this science and technology contest, through its national qualifications and the world final.
This event has been held at Middlesex for the last seven years, it involves teams of two students building small autonomous robots to compete in a 90 second made for TV competition. This year's theme is entitled “Treasure Island!” and the task is searching for treasure to score points.
The top three teams from this event will represent the UK in the world finals in La Ferté-Bernard, France, 17-20 May.
Time: 1:30pm - 6pm
Location: Trent Park campus, Wisteria, W42
