5/31/20 - School sign up has been open
for a while . We're doing it a little differently this
year and using the registration system provided by BEST
robotics. To sign up you school, please use this link.
Because of the uncertainties of what competition we'll
actually be able to have in the fall, and for a number of
other reasons, we're scaling back to 32 teams just for
this year. We will accept teams over that number and
place those teams on a waiting list. We anticipate
that policies at some schools may prevent some teams from
being able to participate this year.
We'd like to be able to tell you how the competition will
be different this year, but just like you, we don't know
what restrictions, etc will be in place when the BEST
season comes around. We do plan to have a
competition, but it may not be a traditional BEST
10/29/19 - The results from Sunday's
competition are below.
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 (5 UIL, 3 BEST, 3 Competition)
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.
San Antonio BEST is a part of the nationwide organization of BEST Robotics, Inc.
