BEST Season Has Begun!

BEST Robotics ROCKS this year!

Pay Dirt, the 2015 BEST Robotics game has begun.  Beginning with BEST Industry Night, Vulcan Materials, Alabama Power and Lou’s Jewelers all shared how the mining industry is involved with their daily operations.  Four days later, 1,000 students, teachers and industry mentors packed Davidson High School’s gymnasium for the official Kick-Off Day.

Kick-off Day photos are posted on our Jubilee BEST Facebook page – be sure to check them out!

The first week was busy for our 40 teams brainstorming and developing their game day strategy.  To assist with the engineering process, the University of South Alabama College of Engineering hosted a workshop.  With 15o students and teachers arriving at USA’s Shelby Hall, engineering students guided the teams through successful design ideas for their robots.
