Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology (BEST) is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization whose mission is to inspire middle and high school students to pursue careers in professional careers like engineering, science, and technology through participation in a sports-like, science and engineering- based robotics competition. BEST started in 1993 in Dallas TX and now boasts 32 Hubs and 3 Regions of Competition.
The Cowtown BEST Hub joined the BEST Family in 2001. We are part of the Texas Hub.
There is no charge to the students or the schools to participate in the BEST program. Instead, donations from corporations and/or colleges and universities make BEST happen.
Lockheed Martin has been a major sponsor of Cowtown BEST and has continued their generous sponsorship year after year.
