Mission Statement

BEST is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization whose mission is to inspire students to pursue careers in engineering, science, and technology through participation in a sports-like, science and engineering-based robotics competition.

Description

North Houston BEST is one of the Houston, Texas area hubs of BEST Robotics, Inc. (BRI). BRI is a non-profit organization with several hubs throughout Texas and the United States, who organize a yearly engineering contest for high school students. The contest lasts 6 weeks and involves having the high school students design, build, then demonstrate a robotic machine to play a "game". We provide actual engineers from the local industry to act as coaches/mentors and guide the students in the engineering process, teaming and other business principles. However, our program is unique from others in that the students have the experience; coaches/mentors are there only to guide, not design and build. Our goal is to boost an awareness of science and technology studies early during the high school years. By doing this we can help to mold the engineers and scientists of our future.
