Scott Rippetoe, our lead mentor, has been involved with robotics competitions for over twenty years. This page provides links to resources for some of these.
BEST (Boost Engineering, Science, and Technology) is a middle and high school robotics competition whose mission is to engage and excite students about engineering, science, and technology as well as inspire them to pursue careers in these fields. Participation in the program is free. A unique aspect of this competition is that everyone starts with the same kit of parts (also free) and competitive robots can be built without the use of sophisticated manufacturing machines.
