About Us

Ashburn Robotics has hosted the Eagle Ridge Tournament for the past ten years, working to ensure the highest quality tournament for everyone involved. Key to the success of this venture has been Team Geared UP!, coached by Mark Vanderlyn, the director of the Eagle Ridge Tournament and Founder of Ashburn Robotics.

Geared UP! is an FTC Team from Loudoun County, Virginia. Sponsored by Ashburn Robotics, Team Geared UP! has been competedĀ in FIRST Lego League (FLL) robotics tournaments for the past 4 years, winning multiple regional, state and national awards. They now focus on the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) and were the Virginia Inspire Award champions for the 2015-16 FTC season.

This year we are excited to partner with Eagle Ridge Middle School while we transition the tournament to Loudoun County Public Schools.
