Smallpeice 2017 was my first experience into the realm of Smallpeice's Computing and Micro Electronics course. This took place between the 29th July and 5th August, for me. The students were only around 31st to 4th.
This year, teams competed in a game called Tin Can Rally, a take on a previous Student Robotics game. Teams had to get around the arena circuit as many times as possible. Each time they passed a quarter marker, they gained a point. If they were carrying one of the 6 tokens in the arena when crossing the line, they would gain an additional point for each. The game was also shorter than standard SR games, at only 2 minutes.
At the arena, we had music playing in the background, through the competition stages, and the testing phase.
