General Info

Welcome to the VRC Spin Up competition being held on December 3rd 2022 and the VRC Nationals will be held on the 4th March 2023 at St Andrews International School Bangkok. All teams for both events need to be registered with St Andrews by the 30th of September 2022, there is an entrance fee of 3000 THB per event per team. Schools also need to register on Robot Events to compete in the 22/23 competition and follow the Robot Events registration process.

There are several new schools joining the VRC Robotics Competition in Thailand this year and a total of 15 schools that are teaching VEX Robotics in Thailand. We are limiting the maximum number of teams to 4 per school, schools that have more than 4 teams will need to hold internal scrimamges to decide what teams attend the VRC Scrimmage and VRC Nationals.

Similar to previous years, St Andrews believe in making this event as exiciting as possible and have set a theme for this years event which is 'Cyber Vikings' - we will have special awards for best dressed and best booths. Lets see how creative schools and teams can be to bring further excitement to the day.
