Hello hello! Happy holidays everyone - we're super excited to announce the information for GSBC 2017!
The dates for GSBC 2017 will be 8/11/17 to 8/28/17 in order to align with the 2017 solar eclipse on 8/21. We know this is later than previous years, but we thought it'd be really exciting to have as many people flying on the solar eclipse as possible. So despite the long window, we highly recommend that all teams in the US fly on the day of the eclipse 8/21!
This year we are going to simplify the challenge categories and only have two of them - best design and best education initiative. These really reflect what the GSBC is all about and we're excited to see what you guys can do! See more information on the challenges in the challenge topic page.
As always, let us know if you have any questions and we're excited to see you guys fly in 2017!
