SET BEST (Southeast Texas Boosting Engineering Science and Technology) is a yearly engineering contest designed to inspire students towards further studies in the fields of science and engineering. Starting from a box of raw materials, teams of high school students are given six weeks to design, build, and then demonstrate a remote-controlled machine that will perform a given task. Engineers and scientists from local industry team with the students as technology coaches, whose job is to mentor and guide the students in understanding the engineering process, teaming, brainstorming and other business principles. On contest day, teams pit their machines in a head-to-head sports-like competition to see which is BEST. Winners advance to the Texas BEST regional competition held each year at University of Texas at Dallas.
The intent of the BEST program is to get kids motivated for studies and careers in engineering, science and technology and introduce them to some of the engineering/scientific methods through mentoring by industry professionals and actual hands-on experience. Real-world engineering is demonstrated while providing an exciting and fun sports-like competition.
SET BEST is one of over 20 hubs throughout Texas and the US. We cover the South East Texas District and surrounding counties in Texas. Visit B.E.S.T. Robotics Inc. for a breakdown of all of the BEST hubs.
