OKBEST Robotics Competition

Its time again to start school. For us here at Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology in Oklahoma (OKBEST), that means it time to start sign ups for the up coming year season of OKBEST. If you're receiving this email, but have never heard of us, please read on.

OKBEST (http://www.okcbest.org) is the local group of a national robotics competition called BEST inc (http://www.bestinc.org). We are based at Oklahoma Christian university Our goal is to encourage middle school and high school aged students to seek careers in engineering, science, and technology. We accomplish our mission thru a six week robot building competition. The competition starts with a kick off event (almost always the first Saturday after labor day in September) at Oklahoma Christian University, Judd theater. At this event, we hand out a box of building building materials, a fabulous remote control system, encouragement, free dough nuts, and a challenge. Your school does not pay us to participate. If you do well enough in the contest, we pay you to go represent us!.
For the next six weeks, the student teams work together to build a robot that will meeting the challenge we set before them. At the four week (usually the first weekend in October), OKBEST holds a practice event that is open to the public and to all teams. This event is usually held in at Crossroads Mall in Oklahoma City. At the end of the six weeks, we hold a contest day at the Eagles Nest at Oklahoma City University. Here all the teams come together and play for various awards - Robot competition, Robot design, T-shirt design, most robust, and engineering notebook.. OKBEST will then send the top robot competition and the robot design notebook the national competition in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Probably the best way to describe OKBEST robot building competition is a science fair meeting a sports event. The best part of our competition is that you the school are not charged anything - you just have to sign a note to return certain very expensive parts to us.
If you'd seriously like to participate, please find us on the www @ http://www.okcbest.org. Additional information can be found at http://www.bestinc.org.
right now, we have slots open, so if your ready, please sign up on our web site! If you like more information, please email me @ madrob100@yahoo.com or give me a call @ 405 210 7831.
