General Info

This event is hosted by STEM Center of Excellence, Inc. to support the new Aerial Drone Competition teams in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) areas.  

This is not a qualifying tournament. The 2024 Eclipse season ended on March 17th but post season scrimmages and workshops are still be held to allow new and experienced teams opportunities to compete in a learning environment to prepare for the next competition season. 

If there are any changes that end up impacting your team to the point where you cannot or are not willing to participate, we will refund your entry fee minus any fees we are obligated to pay RECF.
For those that register, we will be in touch with more information prior to the event.

Teams are urged to upload the Participant Release Form for each student.  The form can be found in the Documents folder to the left. Event Partners (us) must check that these forms are uploaded.  

**Teams are reminded that their robot must be inspected prior to participation in matches flights or skills. Please see the inspection form at the Documents link to the left.  You should plan your arrival time to allow time to set up your Pit Area, Check-in, and get successfully inspected.


Please contact Eric Davis, [email protected], with any questions or concerns.
