About this event

A micromouse is a small, autonomous maze-solving robot. There are national and international contests at all levels from schools upwards, all fiercely contested

The IEE hosted the 1987 international contest in London and continued to host contests in the UK until 1999 when Royal Holloway took up the baton. Since 2004 the national contests have been held at the Technology Innovation Centre, Birmingham. Schools and Colleges competitions have been hosted at Manchester Metropoliton University. The IET continues to be a sponsor.

The idea of micromouse has encouraged many schools to start clubs thus widening the exposure of engineering, electronics and computing, hopefully leading to a new generation of engineers.
