About BEST Robotics

BEST stands for Boosting Engineering Science and Technology, and is a national program with 39 local competition sites in fourteen states. It is administered by BEST Robotics Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization, that sets curriculum and competition standards. The mission of BEST is to inspire students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through participation in a competitive robotics program that fosters knowledge, teamwork, and communication. A major tenet of the program is that there is no cost for robotics materials nor to enter a team.

Each year, middle and high school student teams are tasked with building a robot to compete against other schools in that year’s challenge. Each challenge is based on an educational model. Previous models include “Bet the Farm”, in which students learned about farming and sustainability; and “Pay Dirt” in which students learned about mining and the economics associated with mining. 

The robotics competition is a high-energy sports-like environment but good sportsmanship is essential. Student-driven robots compete against the challenges of the game, not other robots. Each year’s game theme and playing field is revealed in mid-September. Teams are given eight weeks to design and build their robot before entering their local competition.

In addition to robotics, the most coveted award of the program is the BEST Award. To compete, students must provide an engineering notebook, give an oral marketing presentation, construct an exhibit and be interviewed, and show excellent team spirit and sportsmanship. BEST uses the excitement of robotics in our amazing STEM and workforce development program

The highest-ranked teams that are successful in their local (hub) competitions receive an invitation to one of the Regional Championships. We look forward to hosting the “best of the BEST” teams in Colorado this year.
