After the stress of exams, we know that everyone wants a bit of fun during Reading Week. At EARS, we think there’s no better way than playing around with scrap electronics and making something great!

ScraphEEp is an annual event (usually in early February), where we challenge you to build a robot (or other electronic contraption) over the course of a day, competing to complete the set task in the best and most entertaining way possible.

The task is only revealed on the day of the event, making ScraphEEp a fun, frantic, and exciting rush to build something from electronic waste and scrap materials. Past challenges have included line following robots, an obstacle course, and many more. See below for some pictures from previous years.
