About Us

Who we are 

Astrobotics at Virginia Tech is an engineering design team based out of the Joseph F. Ware Advanced Engineering Laboratory that competes in the NASA Lunabotics Competition.

The team is currently comprised of undergraduate engineering students of all years and majors.

How we work

The engineers operate on a one-year design cycle, designing and fabricating the robot in-house at Virginia Tech’s Ware Lab.

The engineers are organized into two sub-teams; mechanical design and controls.

What we do for the community

The team participates in multiple STEM based outreach activities throughout the year with a focus on hands-on activities. If you are interested in working with Astrobotics for an event, please send us an email at vtastrobotics@gmail.com
