Get Involved

Do we need to say it in binary? Come bot with us.

Curiosity is calling. Someone should invent a robot to answer the phone.

We are dependent on technology. Yet there’s no shortage of work to be done — with the biggest challenges involving robotics, cybersecurity, networks, sensors and analysis of big data. 

Who is going to solve it? Students. 

Good news is: this is a passionate community. We keep that momentum strong every time we work alongside with the upcoming generation. Together, we can advance essential things like marine conservation, improved crop yields and life-saving measures and so much more. 

But in order to do all that, we need:

Students to learn. Volunteers to mentor.

Sponsors to support. Partners to teach.

Don’t take our word for it. Take theirs.

“I would just like to say that running an event like this is difficult and I recognize that. I appreciate the efforts of all involved to make it happen and be a great experience for the teams.”

Sponsor

“Sub was the first competition we ever attended as a sponsor – back in 2015 we were just a little fledgling company! We were (and still are!) so stoked to walk around and chat with all of the students, learn about their vehicles, and see how the thrusters and other parts were being integrated into each team’s vehicle.”

“The community aspect of RoboSub is incredible. Teams are collaborative and as a first year team we felt incredibly supported by the other participants. I’ve never been part of a collegiate competition with such a strong community.”

“We love the opportunity to sponsor RoboNation. One of our main objectives attending RobotX and RoboSub was to recruit. These are the exact type of students that we want to come to work at Blue Origin – for internships or full time jobs.”

“As a RoboNation IARC participant in college, I learned many of the things that later allowed me to create Blue Robotics, one of the sponsors and suppliers for the RoboSub, RoboBoat, and Maritime RobotX Challenges. Practical team experiences like these competitions are critical to learn how to be an engineer or business person in the real world and we’re incredibly proud to support that today.”
