Our Teacher/Mentor Institute (TMI) Program

Our Teacher/Mentor Institute training program manages our 3-day training program, which is one way we help prepare teachers and mentors for their role as coaches of BEST teams. In 2020 we provided reading and viewing material for teachers to review before class. During class teachers build mini-robots and create a modified Engineering Notebook. Teachers can apply for 3.8 CEUs for attending our TMI. 

Our Outreach Program

Our Outreach program is planned, managed and implemented by the Outreach team. We attend a few activities that blend well with our goals and objectives, including the Colorado Science Conference organized by the Colorado Association of Science Teachers and Aerobotics at the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum.

Our New Hub Development Program

Our New Hub Development Program manages the effort of helping create new BEST hubs in Colorado. We have facilitated the creation of these hubs – primarily by facilitating New Hub Workshops and significant mentoring – Front Range BEST, SoCo BEST @Trinidad State and Golden Plains BEST.
