A team of students from the London School of Mathematics and Programming "Moonwalker-1" bypassed 40 teams and won first place in the international robotic competition Pi Wars.

Pi Wars is a competition of robots built using the Raspberry Pi mini-computer platform, which is held annually in the computer lab of the University of Cambridge. The competition is held for those who are interested in robotics and programming, and is free for everyone.

This year, students of the London School of Mathematics and Programming attended the competition. Each year competition has a different theme. This year marks 50 years since the Apollo moon-landing mission, which is why the team chose the name of one of the widely known projects of the former Soviet Union - Moonwalker-1. The team Moonwalker -1 included four boys and one girl aged from 7 to 9 years old. The robot of the winning team was built using cybernetic designer TRIK, which was developed in Russia.
