Re: Schools' micromouse competition
The schools and colleges competition is only open to entrants of 18 or less, and the tracks are
2-D, designed for line followers rather than maze solvers. There is one class, formula 4, which
consists of a simple 3-D wall following maze, but the intention is to 'tempt' entrants in the
direction of the senior competition. It isn't suitable as a proving ground for serious 3-D
