Kickstart 2018

Kickstart is the first event of the year and introduces the competition. It provides the first opportunity for the teams meet each other and is also when we hand out the kits.


Kickstart is being held on the University of Southampton’s Highfield Campus:

University Road
SO17 1BJ

When you arrive on campus, you should head to the EEE Building (number 32). We’ve prepared a campus map showing where to park as well as the specific buildings the event is in.

General information

  • Please bring a laptop computer
  • Competitors should come with an adult who accepts responsibility
  • You will need to get your own food (or see this map of food vendors)
