10/15/17 - We had a tremendous competition yesterday. All of the teams did a fantastic job of creating machines that were able to play the game and each and every team scored (that doesn't always happen). Teams should be extremely proud of what they accomplished. Below are the results of the competition and the various awards, we'll post more details when we catch our collective breath!
San Antonio BEST Award Results:
Teams Advancing to the UIL State Championship:
* teams advancing to the Texas BEST and UIL State Robotics Championship from SA BEST (3 UIL, 4 BEST, 3 Competition)
8/15/17 - Hey teams, kickoff is just around the corner. If you're already registered as a team for this year and you would also like to participate as a UIL team, please signup on Eventbrite. Participating as a UIL team gives you an opportunity to advance to the State UIL Championship (like UET did last year, and won!) and provides program recognition in many school districts.
7/7/17 - The schedule has been set! Kickoff is on September 2nd, and the game is on October 14th. Yes, this is an early schedule, but we're sure that you can handle it!
4/6/17 - Team sign up is open! Please take a minute to login to your SA BEST account and signup your team for this year's competition - "Crossfire" on the schools page. Our schedule is currently unknown, but the date options are provided on the schedule page.
12/12/16 - Texas BEST/UIL Championship update
Congratulations to all of the SA BEST teams who participated in the Texas BEST/UIL Competition over the last few days. All of our teams did a great job of representing their schools and San Antonio BEST. Thanks teams!
Below is the list of awards that we noted:
UET deserves a big shout out for being the inaugural UIL State Robotics Champion in the BEST Division as a large school. Well done, team!
The SA BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology) competition is a contest held annually to inspire and interest students in the fields of science and engineering. With guidance from adult mentors, local teams of students design and build a remote controlled machine to accomplish a specific task. The students are given a box of raw materials from which to build the machine and 6 weeks to design and construct it. The task of the robot is kept secret until Kick-off Day, when all the teams are told what the robot is required to do. On Competition Day, all schools will compete head-on with each other in a thrilling science-fair-turned-sports-event. Several teams advance to the regional Texas Best competition and compete with the BEST robots from other areas. More information on the BEST concept is available.
SA BEST appreciates the contributions of all sponsors, but would particularly like to recognize
for their contributions to all BEST hubs through their Yes Program
