Volunteers Wanted!!

Heart of Texas BEST Hub

hot logo Heart of Texas BEST is seeking mentors to work with middle school and high school teams during our 6-week robotics contest. Virtually anyone interested in working with students can be a mentor. Expect to work with students to understand engineering concepts, principles and processes, in addition to promoting teaming and organizational skills. We have set a goal of providing 3 mentors per team. Typical teams meet 3-4 times a week. Mentors are expected to guide the students only; the students are responsible for doing all of the work.

Within a 6-week period, each team will design, manufacture, test and demonstrate (through competition) their unique robotic machine. The machine must meet certain design criteria while still performing the required functions to "play the game". A mentor/teacher orientation meeting will be held prior to the contest at Texas State Technical College in Waco, Texas. Checkout the TSTC Site for further details. Signup now if you have interest in participating as a mentor. A full list of participating schools (so far) can be found at our website.

All About BEST

A Brief History

BEST Logo Take plywood and a box filled with items such as PVC pipe, screws and other hardware, an irrigation valve cover, piano wire, aluminum paint grid, a bicycle inner tube, a BRAIN (BEST Robotics Advanced Instruction Node programmable platform), and something called a micro-energy chain system and try, within six weeks, to design and build a functioning machine that can perform certain, specific tasks in three minutes. What do you get?

You get BEST, a middle and high school robotics competition whose mission is to engage and excite students about engineering, science, and technology as well as inspire them to pursue careers in these fields. Through participation in our project-based STEM program, students learn to analyze and solve problems utilizing the Engineering Design Process, which helps them develop technological literacy skills. It is these skills that industry seeks in its workforce.


This Saturday is the first official competition for Power Surge at University High School starting at nine o'clock, coming to a close at four (PM) and the award ceremony following after. Come out if you can and support the team!!
