General Info

2024 JROTC In-Person Discover Drones Championship Presented by the REC Foundation and PCS Edventures

 

Who can participate?

This Championship event is a private event for JROTC Units that have the PCS Edventures RubiQ Drone.  This event is a culminating event to provide a fun and exciting opportunity for JROTC Units to test their RubiQ Drone flying skills. This event will include an Opening Ceremony with a parade of service and state and an exciting competition experience. 

If your team is not able to compete in-person, there is an alternative Remote Championship option.   If your team is interested in competing remotely, please go to this event website for more information.

Outside organizations are not allowed to participate in this event. 

Competition Game Information

The 2024 Spin Out Game Manual is available in the Documents section and should be carefully reviewed to understand the game objectives, field layout and rules.  Your Edventures RubiQ kits include the necessary field equipment to setup and practice at your school in preparation for this event.

Registration Information

JROTC Units that would like to participate in-person in this event will need to register by March 15th.  The Championship event fee is $150 per JROTC team.  Please note that JROTC Units can compete as a single team or bring multiple teams (max of 3 teams per unit).  We will attempt to offer multiple runs per JROTC team (ideally 1 practice run and 2 - 3 competition runs), and the number of runs per JROTC team will be set once we have finalized the registration.
