General Info

Students use hands-on, industry-standard tools to design, build, and compete against teams from around the US with the most advanced aerial robotics technology available today. Participation in the Bell Advanced Vertical Robotics Competition prepares students for tomorrow’s STEM workforce needs on the ground and in the sky.

Due to the registration fee structure outlined below, teams should place themselves on the wait list to be registered for this event. Teams registering for this event as their first event will be added and their team registration fee will cover this event. Teams registering for this event as a second event will be added, as space permits, and asked to pay the $500 event fee through their Robot events account.

How to waitlist your team: To waitlist your team for an event, make your way to the Waitlist tab on the right side of this page. You should see a green ADD button beside your teams name.  Click add, and your teams should be added.  If you see a message saying that you do not have any eligible teams to add to the waitlist, please make sure that your team is marked as paid.  Teams who are not fully paid and registered will not be able to waitlist or register for events.

If you are not marked as paid, please contact your TEM and request a spot be held for you at the event.  Please provide the team numbers along with the event code at the top of the event page.  If you do not know how to contact your TEM, you can find their information by going to the Robot Events home page, clicking on resources in the upper left corner, and clicking on support.
