This week EEE saw teams made up of students from the ELEC171 project competing in the annual 'Robot Races', where the aim of the game is to have the best performing robot car and the fewest crashes.

Hosted on Tuesday 10th May, the Robot Races took place in the fourth floor EEE labs, where a 'track' was created for students to demonstrate their robots as they attemped to drive their cars around it, and avoid the obstacles.

The students were joined by Dr Mark Bowden, and speaker Professor Mike West, a now-retired industrial and academic electrical engineer who did his undergraduate degree at Liverpool. Mike and his wife Liz have supported EEE Year 1 studies for many years with a generous cash donation, used mainly but not exclusively for prizes.
