SA Best

My students need tools to successfully complete a six weeks build season.

My Students

We are a STEM-focused Early College High School that serves a predominantly Hispanic community in the heart of Texas. This will be the fourth year of operation translating to our first graduating class! We have been generously funded in building our program thus far but have received significant budget restriction before creating this year's curriculum. Our school serves what is considered the middle child who typically gets overlooked in a traditional high school setting. Our goal is to expose our students not only to the college experience but into STEM-focused majors which they are typically underrepresented.

My Project

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. The items requested will be utilized to help our team move from a rookie status to an advanced level that would match the number of years we have been competing.
