In Person BEST Robotics Mines Campus Tour for Prospective HS Students & Guests 

Registration links allow each student to bring a guest (parent, sibling, friend, etc.). Although the registration form states a focus on HS students, Mines understands our BEST population includes MS students. Mines welcomes all our BEST students. Non-students (teachers/mentors) should use the “school counselor/independent educational consultant” choice when registering. When you register, you’ll see that the form includes many questions. Leave blank any field you can’t answer, and “force submit/register” without all fields completed by clicking “submit” twice.
