  • A teacher student meeting will also take place that we will need for 1 teacher and 2 students from each school to attend so that you can recieve other information about the game season. 

October 21, 2018 - Mall Day at the Wiregrass Commons Mall from 1 to 4 pm

Join us for field trials on the same field that will be used in competition to test your robots ability to navigate the course and achieve this year's objectives.

The Spirit Of Best is evident at this event every year as teams share expertise between teams. First year teams receive ideas and mentoring from more established teams and all attendees can see design features of the other teams.  It is always interesting to get first looks at the year's robot designs and see the creativity and problem solving ability of the teams.

This event also is a great way to promote BEST to our community, so we also encourage teams to set up a display booth on their assigned provided table and have students meet and greet shoppers and explain the competition to people who stop and view the proceedings.
