This extensive 2015 table provides lists with links to resources that provide a comprehensive set of material that may be valuable for a BEST Team coach.   

The program has evolved since this table was created.  Especially dated items are as follows:

Season is now 8-weeks long – Practice Day is now generally week 6 with Competition Day on Week 8 called Game Day by some BEST organizations.

Student deliverable names and contents changes:

Project Notebook NOW Engineering Notebook with Software section,

Oral Presentation NOW Marketing Presentation with a marketing focus

Table Displays and Interviews NOW Team Exhibit and Interviews

New Critical Design Review Presentation required by all teams generally at week 5.

The table’s referenced 2015 Coach’s Survival Guide contains 62 pages with helpful tips from forming team to each of the 6 weeks, to optional BEST Award participation.
