East AlabamaWorks has partnered with East Alabama BEST Robotics for this year’s BEST Robotics Program and Competition and the team recruitment process has begun. The BEST Robotics Program is free of cost to schools and community groups. All materials including robotics kits, training, software and guidelines are provided.
The STEM-based program will begin this fall for six weeks after school for students in 6th-12th grades. Teams will compete on a local level before advancing to the national competition held at the end of the year. Through the competition, students will learn the practical use of math concepts, applied physics, product development, and much more.
