The future of flight is evolving, and so are STEM-based competitions. Participants of the 2021 BELL Vertical Robotics Competition (BELL VRC) develop and implement various vertical lift prototypes to address dynamic transportation issues surrounding future emergency medical services, commuter travel, cargo movement, and more.
Students design, build and test their solutions during the 2021 Earthquake Search & Rescue Challenge.
Graduating seniors provided documentation and a video presentation of the design process that was used to create and 3D print the propeller guards and mounting structure for the navigation LED lights. Their key research will support the upcoming Earthquake Search and Rescue Challenge.
Thanks to Microsoft and NASA for judging the Senior Design Project!
Each team registration is $4,000 collected through RobotEvents.com.
This all-inclusive registration fee provides teams with a complete aerial and ground robotics kit, Teacher/Mentor Orientation sessions, and the competition event.
Drone Kit Build - Assembly & Flight Test (Started in Spring 2021 and Continuing August 23 – September 24)
Teams assemble and test the VRC Drone Kit to include flight testing for indoor remote control piloting. Teams build and ground test the Peripheral Control Computer (PCC) to activate LEDs and Servo Actuators to prepare for Phase 2 Search & Rescue Challenge.
Competition REVEAL on September 25 and then 6 Weeks to Design, Build, and Test Solutions... then COMPETE!
